Telkom said it is currently reviewing pricing, which includes that of its wholesale ADSL and fibre-to-the-home IP Connect (IPC) service.
IP Connect is a wholesale service used by Internet service providers to supply data services to their subscribers over Telkom’s ADSL and FTTH infrastructure.
The cost of IPC has a direct impact on the price of retail ADSL and FTTH products, and an IPC price reduction typically leads to improved broadband products from ISPs.
Many ISPs have been asking for IPC price cuts in recent times, which would allow them to develop improved FTTH and ADSL products.
Telkom committed to its customers
Telkom said its commitment to its customers is to focus on increased value through services, flexibility, innovation, and a pricing structure that will enable access to connectivity.
“We will always seek to create opportunities to astound our customers with truly innovative products and services,” said Prenesh Padayachee, MD for Wholesale Services at Openserve.
“In this light, we are currently reviewing pricing, including that of our IPC offering, and will communicate any changes directly to our customers when it is appropriate to do so.”
