Telkom hikes mobile, fibre and DSL prices

Telkom South Africa has announced price increases across fixed-line voice and broadband tariffs, and certain mobile tariffs and services. The price hikes will kick in on 1 August 2022.

“This will be the first tariff increase in over two years, after Telkom’s commitment to aiding its customers and businesses during the hardships faced amid the Covid–19 pandemic,” Telkom stated.

I'm interested to see what they hike mine to.
I'm on month-to-month for 4 phones after their contracts expired.
R100 each on freeme 100. They're old contracts and I've refused to upgrade.

They say freeme should be unchanged. I'm also 4yrs into an old 2yr contract so R140pm for me...

The price was the only thing going for Telkom. Now they got fokol.
They are not hiking their smart broadband packages, which is there "cheaper" LTE deals, I think even their uncapped package of R229 falls in that category.

So many lies in this article. Some about how they care about the customer and service levels and some about how they had a price lock because of Covid.

In the lockdown, communication companies increased profits, more people bought bundles than ever before.

“As part of the tariff increase exercise we will also be adjusting the ADSL 1Mbps and 2Mbps speed and pricing to the 5Mbps product, as the former products are no longer available,” the company said.

“Customers will get the benefits of the faster speed with the price adjustment.”

What happens if attenuation / SNR too high to support more than 2Mbps ADSL?
