Telkom launches 2TB for R699 LTE deal

Just got my sim and router on the 24 months contract today. I tried ordering online but that process was slow so I just went to my local Telkom store and they sorted me out in less than 2 hours (kinda).

These speeds are at 6pm in Secunda, Mpumalanga. So for any similar (or bigger) towns you should be fine. The ping is a bit concerning but I'm happy to be watching 1080p videos on three devices concurrently (was just testing lol).

The D-link router is somehow failing to give me a 5GHz wifi network. I'll try to sort it out later. Right now I'm updating my Steam, GOG, Xbox and Ubi libraries. Feels good to have (virtually) unlimited fast internet again!

Does this deal support multi SIM? Or data transfer to other sim ?
 
have had a look there and it is not there... do not want to sign a contract
I doubt it you will find anything this good in the next 2 years. Besides you can cancel without penalties at anytime.
Barring one month.
 
Been looking at getting this deal. Anyone has had any speed issues so far? Speed throttling? They mention no speed limit but I'm hoping there are no hidden caveats with this deal.
 
Anyone upgraded to this via there call centre?

I want to move one of our R599 uncapped LTE sims (300gb) to this but too lazy to fill in an application or visit a store.

Took 15min in store walked out with an activated sim no issues whatsoever.

I'll send the boss to stand in the queue. He is the signatory after all...
 
Got this deal on the 16th of April. Walked in and got the sim within 30 minutes. Used about 300 GB so far (Had some major updates lol). I've gotten around 60-80 Mbps down so far. Only a few ping issues but nothing major. Only downside is you cant get multi-sim on this deal however if you have other Telkom sims on the Smartbroadband tariff you can transfer 10 GB to them per month.

was it a contract or is it month to month
 
need advice:


would you cancel RAIN to get this?
I'm currently limited to 60 mbps on RAIN. wondering if this will be faster - for the same price

I have an old router. I think its a b315. can i signup for the month-to-month and test?
 
Looks like I have come right over email with a business salesperson who was keen to help me upgrade.

For those already on the deal, if you sms bal to 188, what do the messages say - is there a usage total? What is the plan called?

It tells you how much data you have left. In my case it's about 1.2TB which will expire on 01/06/2022.

BTW you can leave the sms blank, no need to send bal to 188.
