It is still 200GB for all practical purposes. Night surfer data is useless to the majority of people.

I really wish someone could give a truly uncapped LTE package with no limits, I know Rain is doing that but the 6pm cutoff is a bit of a bummer.
Will work on this - already updated our partners and our product teams of the demand ;-)

I run OpenVPN between two of our households, and last time I tried Telkom uncapped, the VPN traffic was shaped heavily. Will this also be the case with capped packages?
there is no rate limiting on our Webafrica Telkom LTE capped packages

If they say R2.65 per GB top up then choose the cheapest 20GB option and simply top up at a cheaper rate than buying the packages. Example 200GB X R2.65 is R530, so cheaper than selecting the 200GB package option.
Yes - this makes lots of sense - but why? is it typo? R12.65?

This will be best deal if it will include roaming because Telkom prepaid LTE bundles are exclusive to Telkom network only

So what are the top up prices on the lower packages?
So if top up pricing is R2.65 per gig. Base price for 20 gigs is R249

120 gigs are R514
220 gigs are R769

So if you dont care about night data get the 20 gig package and just topup

R249 will only get you 10GB day and 10GB night on prepaid. Here you are getting double the daytime data and its still month to month with a free loan router.

Top up options not very nice. So you have to buy a whole package as a top up and not just a GB if need be?

Please update your website to reflect this. No just say FROM.....it is misleading as shown below.

This was looking promising until I saw the top up scenarios.

That is a bit cheaper than what I am paying atm. But then again, I am paying off the router as well.

Will definitely get this when the ol' contract expires.
