Bundled ADSL pricing comparison

Over the last few months many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have slashed the price of their bundled ADSL offerings which combine ADSL access and ADSL data charges.

There is clearly a strong move in the ADSL market to try to convince subscribers to move their ADSL access portion from Telkom to the ISP.  Some ISPs are even giving away free bandwidth when a subscriber buys their ADSL access from them rather than Telkom.

The strong focus from service providers to offer subscribers both ADSL access and ADSL data bundles is not surprising.  The convenience of a single ADSL bill – apart from the compulsory analogue line rental due to Telkom that is – means higher loyalty and a lower churn rate.

ADSL access is also another revenue stream for ADSL ISPs, and in an environment where the margin on ADSL data is diminishing fast it is wise to look at as many revenue streams as possible to ensure sustained income and profits.

Competition in the ADSL market is however stiff, and some ISPs have already started offering ADSL access and bundled ADSL services at below cost to gain market share.

Here are some of the more prominent bundled ADSL offerings in the market today.
