I need some advice on Telkom Business VoIP Voice Plan
https://secure.telkom.co.za/today/shop/plan/voip/

There are 3 plans:
1.VoIP Voice Plan*
1 Voice Session (SIP)​
Zero Subscription fee​
2.Unlimited VoIP Plan 5*
5 Voice Session (SIP)​
R1500 Subscription fee​
3.Unlimited VoIP Plan 10*
10 Voice Session (SIP)​
R2999 Subscription fee​

I'm considering Plan 1 or Plan 2.
The FAQ says "*You must have IP PBX and a broadband and internet service connection."
The Yealink w60b base station support 8 SIP accounts and 8 handsets.

You can transfer calls, do DID, etc.

Is the base station enuf or do I need to use an IP PBX like Asterisk?

You only need a PBX if you want to be able to seemlessly transfer calls etc, it may well work with the built in functions on the W60, but they are often fiddly or combersome to transfer on, I would suggest a cloud PBX solution, you could still use your base and handsets. I would also explore what other VOIP providers have to offer.
