8ta announced today (11 January 2012) that they have reduced broadband rates for once-off Internet packages as well as post-paid Internet packages.

8ta has also revised its contract terms, which now include month-to-month, 12- and 24-month terms.

The month-to-month contract excludes a modem, while the 12- and 24-month contracts will include a modem.

“Existing 8ta Internet subscribers will automatically be migrated to the new price plans, and after their contracts are up for renewal they can also opt to subscribe on a month-to-month or 12 month contract basis,” said Managing Executive of Telkom Mobile, Amith Maharaj.

Once the monthly recurring post-paid Internet package has been depleted, users will be charged an out-of-bundle rate of R 0.30 per MB. Once-off Internet subscribers will be charged an out-of bundle rate of R1.00 per MB.

The following tables list 8ta’s latest mobile data prices for contract and prepaid subscribers.
