Telkom reduces Fixed DSL and FTTH data bundle prices
By Staff Writer
Telkom on Wednesday announced price adjustments to a range of its current data products, including Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) and Do bundles on Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), with some bundles slashed by more than 15%. This comes on the back of significant price reductions for other Telkom products, including prepaid mobile data, LTE and LTE A deals for home offices and enhanced value for voice bundles.
The new Do Bundle prices start at R399 a month (reduced from R408 previously) for the Do Basic Bundle, which includes up to 2Mbps and 10GB soft cap, and goes up to R999 a month (reduced from R1 028) for the Do Elite Plus Bundle, which includes up to 40Mbps and a 100GB soft cap. The only exception is the price for the Do Elite product, which will increase slightly by about 1% to R799 per month. Telkom customers who are currently subscribed to Do Bundles will also benefit from the price reductions.
All Do bundles include free night surfer data between 12am and 7am, 3GB mailbox and one email account with five aliases. When signing a 24 month contract, a free Wi-Fi enabled modem is included in the bundle. Line rental is also included in all the bundle pricing.
Fibre prices range from R699 a month for the 10Mbps and 50GB data bundle up to R1 599 for the 100Mbps and 200GB bundle (reduced by 11%). All fibre bundles include free night surfer data between 12am and 7am, as well as a free Wi-Fi-enabled modem, 3GB mailbox and one email account with five aliases.
“The price reductions on Telkom’s data bundles are further proof of our commitment to make broadband more accessible and affordable. We believe this will provide more customers with Telkom’s light speed broadband at greater value,” said Attila Vitai, Telkom’s Managing Director: Consumer and Mobile Services. “These adjustments will benefit our consumers and is part of our commitment to improve the customer experience and put our customers first.”
New pricing will take effect today, Wednesday, 1 July 2015, and the price increase for the Do Elite Bundle will take effect from 1 August 2015.
