MWEB will join Telkom Internet and Web Africa in allowing their subscribers to participate in the high-speed broadband trial, free of charge.

MWEB ISP CEO Derek Hershaw said that they have identified about 120 qualifying subscribers and that they will be contacting them telephonically this week to invite them to participate in the trial.

Good news for qualifying MWEB subscribers is that their speeds will be upgraded to up to 40Mbps free of charge during the trial.

“They will not be asked to pay anything extra to participate in the trial. We will provide them with a VDSL modem, and there will be no additional charges for the line speed or bandwidth upgrades,” said Hershaw.

Hershaw said that they are looking forward to getting started and to see what the actual results look like. “We’d like to have everyone up and running by the end of the month at the latest,” said Hershaw.
