    the adjustments are significantly less than inflation which is currently at 5.7%
    Typical Telkom response... use the average price increase, including services almost nobody uses. Fast DSL is up 9%, 3.3% above inflation.

    I just see that goal of affordable broadband to all South Africans and 100% penetration by 2020 drift far away.

    Didn't Telkom say about a month ago their fee's for ADSL wont increase, even though the speed is increasing?

    Fast DSL (up to 1 024 kbps per month) was R152.00 now R165.00
    Faster DSL (up to 2 048 kbps per month) was R289.00 now R299.00
    Fastest DSL (up to 4/10 mbps per month) R413.00 now R425.00

    Don't mind paying R13 more mainly because of the 384kbps increase to 1024kbps, if there were no speed increase I would've canceled my ADSL line cause then it just wont make sense.

    My uncle just upgraded to 40Mbps in Ireland today, what a sad day this is for me.

    I find the new bundle interesting... I currently have a Telkom 1Mbps Uncapped Account. I pay:

    Old Cost
    Telkom Internet 1024 uncapped + R369
    Telkom Line Rental + R139.97
    ADSL Line Rental + R289
    Total Cost = R797.97

    New Cost
    Telkom Internet 2048 uncapped + R369
    Telkom Line Rental + R148.37
    ADSL Line Rental + R299
    Bundle discount - R89
    Total Cost = R727.37

    Effectively a bump from 1Mbps to 2Mbps for a saving of R70,60 on my current cost.

    EDIT: please correct me if my sums are wrong.
