South Africa’s big entry-level broadband pricing surprise

Calling for lower broadband prices in South Africa is nothing new, with the government and other stakeholders punting the benefits of affordable connectivity services.

While mobile data prices and high-speed fibre broadband access remain expensive, the price of ADSL and wireless Internet access have dropped significantly in recent years.

In fact, entry-level fixed-broadband prices in South Africa are of the cheapest globally.
* Thumbsuck numbers *

What they tell you:

SA entry-level: R370
Everyone else: R400

...and then claim "look how cheap it is"

What they don't tell you:

SA entry-level: 2mbps
Everyone else: 10mbps



...unless I've got this completely wrong, in which case, someone please educate me. Thanks.

So how does it relate to the entry level wage?
