Web Africa unveils home uncapped ADSL service

Today (15 November 2011), Web Africa launched their home uncapped ADSL service aimed at residential broadband customers.

Web Africa’s home uncapped products start at R179 per month for a 384kbps offering while their 10Mbps uncapped service costs R1,699.

The full range of Web Africa uncapped home products is:

  1. Up to 384kbps – R179
  2. Up to 1Mbps – R289
  3. Up to 4Mbps – R599
  4. Up to 10Mbps – R1699

Acceptable Use Policy

Like all other ISPs, Web Africa’s uncapped ADSL product carries an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which the company said is “designed to protect those who play by the rules”.

Web Africa explains that their home uncapped product uses 6 hour and 7 days rolling windows to ensure “your account keeps running smoothly”.

“If you reach your rolling windows within 6 hours or 7 days, respectively, your maximum download speed will be de-prioritised until your usage falls below your limit again.”

“How much your speed is reduced will depend on how many other users have been de-prioritised, as well as whether we have available capacity on the network.”

The good news is that if there is available capacity, rolling window limits do not apply and subscribers’ speeds will not be affected at all.
