The range extender is quite nice, I upgraded one of my 10+5 deals to the 20+20 deal last month, came with new router and this wifi extender, sold my old router for cash, and used the wifi extender to cover the 1 room that had very weak wifi from the fibre router.

Wait for what? Supersunbird already said it's a B315-936. You can Google ini't? Plus the repeater.

Does the 20GB option come with a router and repeater?

FTFY, that deal's done.

I use my 10GB+5GB in my 8 inch tablet as a personal hotspot that easily last 1.5days on a single charge (vs these crap sub-10 hour mifis).

He probably bought it telephonically, not going into store.

Yes, it DID come with a router and extender. It still does, just that it costs more per month now.

Yes it is , but the sales agent at Telkom told me that they can still give me that option even 2-3 days after the big deal of July is history, so I am thinking, do I take the July big deal or do I go for the Home Unlimited 4Mbps uncapped deal @ R599 per month ??

Besides loading 500GB of data for R50 that last's 31 days, surely we can top the sim with daytime data ? I am using that sim right now, paying R14,50 for 50MB :(... Telkom why not have a selection of say : R20,00 for 200MB and R50 for 500MB ? Come on Telkom, you know you would make big bucks by doing so:)

Surely you have another sim card, you're not using this as your main data sim?

I am deciding between the big July deal for R299 pm , or the home unlimited 4Mbps uncapped @R599 as my main data?

Uncapped vs 20GB? should be easy to decide, LTE has the speed however you will be worried about reaching you cap in a matter of days.

Not a bad deal at all, many people don't need more data than this. My parents still use the 8ta launch promo of 10gb+10gb but convincing them that wifi is better than them sharing the usb modem is beyond me.

All they have to do is upgrade.
