Price cuts and speed upgrades from Openserve

Openserve has made major changes to its wholesale offerings, offering significant speed upgrades at no additional charge to customers.

In a mail sent to ISPs seen by MyBroadbnd, the network operator announced that it would be implementing connection speed upgrades across its fibre and copper products.

What does this mean for ISP pricing? Will they increase the price of my 50Mbps offering? Or just limit me to 50Mbps at the same price?

Hopefully Vuma/SADV get in on the act, the just the 10mb from Cool Ideas is getting expensive, here you getting 25mb for far cheaper.

Ummmmmm anything Vumatel, very quiet over there.
RocketNet did send out a price update a week ago.

Pricing pretty much stayed the same, but asynchronous packages were falling away. If you were on them, you'd be bumped up to the sync package, which would cost more.

So if I'm on a HomeUnlimited 20mb premium package from Telkom (I have my voice line), will I be upgraded to 40mb or no?

Doubt it, they were one of the only ISPs to not have the double speed promotion.
Yes Minthespeed did double the speed.

I think they would charge you less. But going with how companies operate to maximize their profits, I guess they'd rather increase your speed and charge you the same as before. Just my opinion.
