Telkom has reduced the pricing of its ADSL and fibre-to-the-home packages.
The company said its broadband bundles are now up to 15% cheaper, which follows a recent reduction in pricing of its LTE and LTE-Advanced offerings.
“The new Do Bundle prices start at R399 a month (reduced from R408 previously) for the Do Basic Bundle, which includes up to 2Mbps and 10GB soft cap, and goes up to R999 a month (reduced from R1 028) for the Do Elite Plus Bundle, which includes up to 40Mbps and a 100GB soft cap,” said Telkom.
The only exception is the price for the Do Elite product, which will increase by “about 1%” to R799 per month from 1 August.
Telkom customers who are currently subscribed to Do Bundles will also benefit from the price reductions.
All Do bundles also include free night surfer data between 12am and 7am, 3GB mailbox, and one email account with five aliases, said Telkom.
“When signing a 24-month contract (for a DSL service), a free Wi-Fi-enabled modem is included in the bundle. Line rental is also included in all the bundle pricing.”
Fibre prices slashed
Fibre prices now range from R699 per month for the 10Mbps, 50GB package, to R1,599 for the 100Mbps, 200GB package.
“All fibre bundles include free night surfer data between 12am and 7am, as well as a free Wi-Fi-enabled modem, 3GB mailbox, and one email account with five aliases.”
