Openserve, the wholesale division of Telkom, will reduce the entry-level pricing of IP Connect (IPC) by up to 57%.
This comes after Openserve told Internet service providers last week that it will cut IPC prices from 1 June 2016.
IPC is the wholesale product ISPs use to offer ADSL, VDSL, and fibre services on Telkom Openserve’s infrastructure.
The price reduction announcement follows the recent announcement that Openserve is peering at Internet exchange point NAPAfrica.
The new pricing structure for SAIX Dedicated Access shows average reductions of between 31% and 60%, depending on the product procured, said Openserve.
“This will stimulate greater innovation and creativity among the ISPs to the benefit of consumers,” said Openserve.
“With these two announcements we are further signalling a break from the past by formalising the autonomy that is necessary to serve all our clients on an equitable and transparent basis,” said Prenesh Padayachee, chief of sales and marketing at Openserve.
