Unrelated to the price reduction, but it would be brilliant if Telkodemonopolies could put a stop to all forms of its adverts & marketing when it is in a closed period - basically complete silence from Telkodemonopolies at least once a year would be excellent.Telkom was asked whether subscribers can expect any further ADSL price reductions, but as the company is currently in a closed period it could not comment on any forward looking events. There is however speculation that ADSL subscribers may be in line for a price cut this August.
Does Telkom have any idea how much local-only is used in a month? In the right environments there is quite a large demand for local bandwidth.Telkom said that TelkomInternet dropped the price of local bandwidth “to align with current market trends and also to stimulate demand for local bandwidth usage.”
They seem to be referring to the usage of SAIX here, as Web Africa charges R4.33 for local IS.This price is competitive when compared to typical local-only bandwidth pricing like Web Africa’s R 19 per GB, but is still higher than price leaders like Axxess’ R 10 per GB.
