Telkom has announced price changes to its bundled uncapped ADSL products, which are set to go live on 1 August 2014 as part of its annual tariff adjustments.
The price of Telkom Internet’s 2Mbps and 4Mbps uncapped ADSL bundles will increase, while the price of the ISP’s 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL products will decrease.
