Business ADSL pricing comparison

Vodacom Business announced on Monday (22 August) a reduction in the price of their DSL offerings which include shaped, unshaped, capped and uncapped solutions.

Chris Ross, Vodacom’s Managing Executive for Commercial Development, highlighted that Vodacom procures bandwidth from a variety of cable systems, including SAFE, SAT3, SEACOM and EASSy, and uses technology that blends these to create great reliability.

According to Ross Vodacom provides ‘lower contention rates which results in the delivery of a higher quality service to their business customers’.

“We are committed to meeting the market needs of our business customers, and have heard what they want from a services supplier – reliability, availability, robustness and quality at a reasonable cost,” Ross concludes.

Vodacom’s recent price cut reduces the price of their ADSL data bundles by up to 45%.
