Thread: Vodacom planning cheaper consumer ADSL service

    Default Vodacom planning cheaper consumer ADSL service

    Vodacom planning cheaper consumer ADSL product

    Vodacom acknowledges their previous ADSL products were priced too high, and is planning a more affordable ADSL service

    Vodacom’s 3GB ADSL data bundles cost R169.00 (once off), well above Telkom’s R99 for 5GB and even Telkom’s R149 for 10GB.

    With these high prices Vodacom has unsurprisingly not gained much market share, and is all but irrelevant in the local ADSL market.
    Much? I'm surprised that they have any market share with those prices.

    Vodacom offers 1 GB for R99.

    That is more cost effective than ADSL with line rental and ADSL rental.

    Seriously VC, welcome to the real world. You can't expect the same high margins beyond the mobile voice oligopoly, from a market in which there is real competition.

    Further info in the price comparison part of the article : Afrihost add-on is R39pm for 2gigs. Even if they offered a product with half the contention, it would still be cheaper!

    You launched this in August 2010. At the time we told you that prices are too high, yet you wait years until 2012 before you react? Next you're going to tell us it was for our own good, something ridiculous like to prevent your network from being clogged up by overuse due to too low prices.

    Vodacom, the company that only has our wellbeing at heart. No really. /sarcasm

    Here's an idea now that you officially recognise that you've been screwing us ..
    How about giving some of that money back?

    A fool and their gold...

    Anybody who signed up at those prices deserved whatever came their way IMO. Don't think the onus should be on VC to refund people due to their gullibility.

    It took Vodacom 18 months to figure this out... the product was forgotten about just after the launch! I thought they'd canned it!

    Epic Fail!

    And BTW, the vast majority of ADSL users have absolutely no idea what contention is!

    They might not know what it is, but I assure you they know what 1:600 feels like.

    Based on their wireless service I would rather pass.
