Afrihost announced today (21 August 2012) that it has cut the price of its 10Mbps uncapped ADSL service, and has launched a 2Mbps uncapped ADSL product at an aggressive price.
This announcement from Afrihost comes amidst Telkom’s plans to start upgrading its ADSL speeds this week.
Telkom will start upgrading its “Up to 1024kbps” ADSL users to “Up 2048kbps” from 24 August 2012, and will start upgrading its 384kbps ADSL users to 1Mbps from 1 October 2012.
Afrihost uncapped ADSL
Afrihost has cut the price of its 10Mbps uncapped ADSL service from the previous R997 to R797 per month.
Afrihost has also introduced a new 2Mbps uncapped ADSL product, priced at R297 per month.
“We chose to be prudent and await the official roll-out schedule for Telkom’s upgrades, rather than make an early announcement in line with competitors. In this way we have ensured the best possible prices (and savings) for our clients,” Afrihost said in a press statement.
“Unbundled ADSL Lines will be automatically upgraded without any change in price. Uncapped clients will have the option of keeping their existing products, or upgrading to the higher speeds,” the company said.
