Telkom has launched a fibre-to-the-home trial, where thousands of DSL users across South Africa will be migrated to the broadband technology free of charge.

DSL customers within Telkom’s fibre footprint will be given the opportunity to upgrade their copper-based connectivity to the more advanced fibre network.

“DSL customers who are currently on 2Mbps, 4Mbps, and 8Mbps DSL products can now, for no extra charge, move across to the more stable and reliable fibre network,” said Telkom.

During the two-month trial, customers are also able to test Telkom’s Boltspeed 10Mbps and 20Mbps fibre products, for free.

After the two-month trial is complete, customers will have the option to keep one of these two packages, or return to their original speed at the original price.

The good news is that even if they select their original slower speed, the service will still be served over a fibre connection.

Telkom Consumer MD Attila Vitai said their teams are working to secure installations within 7 to 10 days from order.

Telkom is offering the option to migrate from its copper-based DSL service to an equivalent fibre-based service in a phased approach. The trial offer starts on 2 February 2016.
