MTN announced today (23 January 2012) that the company will increase the maximum speed limits on their uncapped broadband packages.

From 1 February 2012 users of Uncapped Lite packages will be moving from the current limit of 128kbps, to 256kbps after the 3GB limit is reached.

Uncapped Pro users will have a maximum speed limit lift from 128kbps to 384kbps after the 10GB limit is reached.

The current promotion, which offered unmetered broadband access, began on 1 October 2011 and will run until 31 January 2012.

“It was a response to customer demands for faster and reliable Internet access at an affordable fixed monthly cost. And with a truly uncapped, no restriction limit. The volumes are astounding,” said MTN.

“It was impressive to see the consumption rate – which certainly speaks to the value customers are getting from this R289 p/m promotional package,” said Serame Taukobong, Chief Marketing Officer at MTN South Africa. “The term ‘uncapped’ data has been bandied around in the industry – but this is truly the most competitive unlimited promotion on offer today.”

This promotion’s success has been the impetus for MTN’s decision to revise the Fair Use Policy (FUP) and permanently increasing its maximum speed limits after the limits have been reached.

This means that high usage customers will then be throttled again after the current promo ending on 31 January 2012, but at higher speeds than previously.
