Summary: TelkomInternet is launching at least three uncapped ADSL accounts today: “up to 384kbps” for R219 per month, 1Mbps for R369, and a promotional bundle exclusive to the rAge expo for R782 that includes “up to 10Mbps” line rental and Battlefield 3.
TelkomInternet is selling their new uncapped ADSL accounts at the rAge gaming expo being held this weekend (30 September to 2 October 2011).
The Telkom uncapped account sales confirm speculation from yesterday that Telkom would be introducing consumer uncapped ADSL today.
Telkom’s “do Uncapped” accounts will be throttled during the day between 06h00 and 22h00 to a certain fraction of the maximum linespeed, but there is no restriction on local traffic.
The do Gamers bundle, available only at rAge this weekend, costs R782 per month and includes line rental for Telkom’s fastest ADSL offering (“up to 10Mbps”), a 1Mbps do Uncapped account, a copy of Battlefield 3 (when it launches), and a 2TB external hard drive.
You are required to sign a 12 month contract for the Do Gamers bundle.
The details of the new TelkomInternet do Uncapped accounts are as follows:
- Do Uncapped 384kbps account only – R219;
- Do Uncapped 1Mbps account only – R369;
- Do Uncapped 4/10Mbps account only – R2097
- Do Uncapped 384kbps account & ADSL access – R371;
- Do Uncapped 1Mbps account & ADSL access – R658;
- Do Uncapped 4/10Mbps account & ADSL access – R2510
Package pricing excludes landline rental.
Telkom’s 384kbps uncapped account is priced exactly the same as Mweb’s, but its 1Mbps account is somewhat more expensive (Mweb’s costs R299 per month).
