RSAWEB Managing Director Rob Gilmour said that the high cost of ADSL line rentals is the last barrier to providing affordable broadband access to all South Africans.
“Consumers have benefited from the recent price wars over data, but when you add the cost of line rentals, the barrier still remains too high. The wider economic benefits of a connected society will only truly be felt once this barrier is removed,” said Gilmour.
The new prices are available on RSAWEB’s consumer capped ADSL product called Super DSL.

This price reduction from RSAWEB comes amidst a slew of promotional offers and price reductions in the ADSL ISP market.
Cybersmart, for example, recently launched an ADSL promotion where they give ADSL users 5GB free per month for 6 months if they move their ADSL line to the company.
In May 2011 Vox Telepreneur also offered 2GB of free data per month to all new and existing subscribers who have their ADSL lines with Vox.
