Kiss ADSL goodbye

Telkom's latest interim financial results have revealed that ADSL is all but dead in South Africa.

Between September 2022 and September 2023, Telkom's wholesale fixed-network division Openserve saw its fixed broadband subscribers decline by 1.3% — from 562,080 to 554,809.
 
If you have DSL in 2023 I assume you live in a cave and use rock implements as tools.

me, not living in cave nor rock tools ...

situate underground and no possible fibre available that is the reason why still using adsl......:(
 
How many of those 12k lines are just people/companies still paying for ADSL after the line stopped working five years ago?
 
This is actually good news. If Telkom forgets about adsl then perhaps they'll start investing in country wide fibre. I doubt the figure is accurate though. Might still be some lines not accounted for through pure adsl.
 
Telkom abandoned their infrastructure in our small town and we do not even have very good 3G, so paying R1000 pm to a WiFi provider for a 20Mbs link which becomes unreliable when the weather gets bad.......

Starlink?
 
If you don't have fibre you would be glad to still have an ADSL instead of the scam that is LTE.
