Telkom ADSL

Telkom Internet increased their ADSL cap sizes, providing their subscribers with more data at the same price.

DSL blended data will automatically be added to Telkom Internet’s current 4GB, 8GB and 16GB data packages at no additional charge.

The company informed customers that 1GB subscribers will not benefit from the increased data allowances, but encouraged them to upgrade to a 5GB package for only R20 extra per month.

Telkom’s new data bundle sizes mean that the company is now one of the most affordable ISPs for capped products, especially when comparing their 20GB data pricing.

The table below compares Telkom’s new package prices with similar products from competing ADSL ISPs.
