View Full Version : Telkom 9gb package(s)

Just curious. If a telkom 4mbs dsl subscriber uses up their 9gb, can you buy another 9gb package for the month or do you have to buy 1gb at a time. I'm looking on their website and can't find any gb packages. I'm basically looking for an easy setup for my parents where I can top up for them by just buying a package if theirs runs out. We live far apart and I can't go and switch router logins for other isps everynow and then. They're on a contract with Telkom for at least another year. Any links will be helpful.

Maybe set up a remote assistance link for PC and modem.

G. Combined Total Used (E + F) - 4.26GB
Remaining Default Package Data - 4.73GB
Default Package Data Percentage Used - 47.38%
H. Billable Out of Bundle Data (G - D - A - C) - 0Bytes or [0.00GB]
Remaining Additional Requested Data (B - H) - 0Bytes or [0.00GB]

Should your current allocated data not be satisfactory, you can upgrade your package by calling 10215 (option 1) or alternatively TopUp your current username with additional Blended data at https://secure.telkomsa.net/topup
On the website where you log on, you can purchase from 1 to 10 GB at a time. I'll imagine it'll expire at the end of the month it was purchased in.
EDIT: RTFS to myself: "Please Note: any Unused bandwidth will not be transfered to the following month."

yes there is 2 ways of doing it .The first option is like ab-user say and then the new option is you apply and tell them with how many Gigs you want to go over your 9 gigs and they auto bill you with only the amount you used. The first option works out to about R69 per Gig and the second one to I think R48 per Gig Will see if I still have that e-mail from telkom

Thanks. So for an extra 10gb bundles is it the an extra R480? Or is it discounted?

Option 1: Credit Card TopUp via https://secure.telkomsa.net/topup - Unused data experire month end and charged at R49 per GB
Option 2: Set your own cap and only get charged for the data consumed on your Telkom Invoice - Much better option - available on their Usage Tracker tool on www.telkomsa.net
