About 70% (more here http://mybroadband.co.za/news/adsl/41847-the-truth-about-adsl-costs-in-sa.html). IPC costs about R2000 per 1mbit (excl vat). International is about R700 per 1 mbit (excl vat). So even after this reduction IPC will go to about R1400 (if its truly coming down by 30% which is still not totally confirmed) - leaves it still at double the price of International.
If this reduction comes to fruition then kudo's to ICASA and Telkom for coming to the party. This is a great step in the right direction, and a really massive improvement for SA broadband. Expect some exciting products from WA shortly
I don't get this, Rupert you own an ISP, yet you have still not been informed about any of these changes - I am glad ICASA seems to have stuck to a target, but surely there is a huge issue here with Telkom not providing you as their client with the relevant information on the price reduction? Are they just going to send you a bill at the end of April with the revised pricing?? Seems pretty strange all in all.
On the above pricing - so an uncontended 1Mbps ADSL service (excluding Telephone and line rental) would be R2000 (IPC) + R700 (international) and then some overheads for equipment and management from the ISP - is that about right?
