Telkom speeds up uncapped ADSL, drops prices



Telkom Business has announced price adjustments and an increase in speed on its uncapped Internet product offerings.

South African Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) can look forward to bandwidth increases on the entry-level offerings and up to 27% reduction in prices on the higher end usage offerings. Effectively, customers on entry level 384 and 1024 Uncapped Internet usage products will be upgraded to 1024 and 2048 Uncapped Internet respectively at no additional cost.

The new prices on usage products and value bundles are effective immediately while speed upgrades will commence automatically from 24 August 2012.

‚Telkom Business remains committed to enabling small and medium business customers with high quality internet services. Today, we have not only increased value but we have also slashed prices,‚ says Mr Thami Magazi, Managing Executive: SME Services.

‚Over the last six months, we’ve recorded a 105% increase in internet usage from our retail customers over Telkom Internet. This includes increased activity by small and medium enterprises customers who are integrating high speed Internet into their daily operations.‚

Mr Magazi suggested that the increase in fixed bandwidth was enabled by the introduction of high quality uncapped Internet last year which has facilitated the uptake of more sophisticated business applications such as collaborative email, document sharing and web-hosting or cloud storage tools.

These product updates follow the recent announcement by the company on the upgrade of entry level ADSL speeds to enable new generation consumer content and business applications in a more cost effective manner.

Mr Steve Lewis, Managing Executive of Product House says, ‚Based on our customers’ responses, we are improving our uncapped offerings while remaining responsible to the core network products through which we deliver our customer traffic.‚

‚We are passing on benefits of improved bandwidth pricing and increased value in entry level products into our uncapped usage products,‚ Mr Lewis added.

These product updates have been designed to enable businesses to gain a significant competitive edge.

‚We believe that by offering these packages at these prices, we offer business customers the ability to enhance their ICT experience with a wider range of business utilities to truly boost their productivity,‚ concluded Mr Magazi.
