Hi
Can anyone recommend a good 10/15gb data deal? No contracts please. month-to-month also works.

R549 is a little too much, and I don't need 60gb. I just need data for social media and looking things up online.
Are you sure?

No youtube, netflix? Just facebook and whatsapp, wikipedia.... Noooo man.
60Gb is nothing

:D

Seems like there aren't any good deals in the 10/15gb area. Does the deal also work while roaming? telkom coverage is none existent here.
Ja, if there is no reception I wouldn't go with telkom, you'll be stuck with 3G only roaming on MTN

GSM
Telkom LTE prepaid:
10 GB + 10 GB R249
20 GB + 20 GB R355
40 GB + 40 GB R455
60 GB + 60 GB R555
100 GB + 100 GB R755
200 GB + 200 GB R1055

But you say no Telkom coverage.
It is worth checking if you really cannot get Telkom signal.
=> Other GSM options is quite a bit more expensive.

Wifi
Options will be contracts or measurable outlay at first.

Fixed lines
Will be contract.

Indicate the location so we can lookup or tell us what types of services are available where you need this.

As far as I know. Telkom uses MTN for coverage where they don't cover themselves. So you should be covered even with a Telkom option.
But the best Telkom prepaid deals are only available to use when using the Telkom network, not when roaming. On a good day I get 2 bars of 3G Telkom signal.

dial *180# on Telkom and check out the data bundles page. the 500gb midnight data promoting ends on the 4th of May so your last day to purchase is on the 3rd. You must be on the Smartbroadband tarrif plan

Pardon the dummy steps, I find it convoluted.
1. Go to any physical store and buy a Telkom sim card. I am told PEP sell them, yes PEP!
2. Ring Telkom tell them you live in a LTE area {they will ask for an address, must provide otherwise they will not help} and you want LTE activated on the card.
3. Now you can either
a. Use shot codes to buy. I cant help with that never done this.
b. Register and login to the Telkom portal.
Go to Dashboard, Topup, {now you in Products} Pick "Top up" again, Data bundles, Dropdown LTE, ==> See options to buy.

Please let us know if you managed this.
I was super surprised that Telkom sell airtime this cheap. I used Vodacom for many years. MTN at times.
These Telkom packages are mad.
