I want to go for the telkom soft cap 40GB for R149. I have a few questions though.

1. Will I be able to use it when I'm away from home?

2. How much are the additional costs (installation)?

3. Is the night surfer uncapped?

4. Will i be able to use it from my phone?

5. Is it a good deal?

1. You can use it on any DSL line, at work or at home.

2. Costs are comprised of phone line + dsl line + data and depends on the line speed.

3. Yes

4. Well, via a Wireless AP yes, but its not a cellular service.

5. No, the price is nothing special.

About R700 for installation once off, but if you have an existing line you can opt for a self install option. also you will pay extra R189 or R169, not quite sure every month for the line rental. So effectively you looking at just below R400 every month for your adsl line.

*Edit* also the price of adsl line rental is not included in that offer.

+This cost excludes your monthly Telkom line rental fee, ADSL, VDSL or Fibre Line rental and all voice and fax calls

Telkom is very shy on details on their website, but in your case it will be Telkom line rental, adsl line rental and voice and fax calls if applicable on top of the R149 as well as the once off installation costs if applicable.

Not on the service at the price you're looking at. Maybe consider an LTE option from Telkom, or if you have good MTN coverage, from Afrihost? For R200 you can get 4GB.

How much do you think afrihost would cost me? I spend about 10GB a month. And because its the holidays now, I'm going to spend double that amount

I'm with vodacom and get 10GB for R549 (top up) so that deal is not very appealing
