Telkom will start to upgrade its “Up to 1024kbps” ADSL users to “Up 2048kbps” on Friday 24 August 2012, and consumers should start to enjoy the higher speeds without any intervention from their side.
Telkom further confirmed that it is on track to start upgrading 384kbps clients to 1Mbps from 1 October 2012.
“Upgrades will happen automatically as part of a potential six week period to upgrade the total base per speed category,” said Telkom.
Telkom added that their full ADSL customer base across the country will be upgraded, and that the higher speeds should automatically take effect.
However, Telkom explained that while customers with newer modems should not need to reset their modem to get the higher speed, a reset may be necessary for older modems.
