Lower ADSL prices and special promotions

Openweb and Axxess are boosting the value offered to their ADSL subscribers with lower capped ADSL prices and a top-up ADSL promotion respectively.

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) announced on 30 March 2012 that wholesale ADSL IPConnect prices would be dropped by 30% on 1 April 2012.

These price cuts allow ADSL Internet service Providers (ISPs) to pass on some of the savings to consumers, and Web Africa announced on Monday that they have upped their anytime data allowances on their home products by 400%.

Today (5 April 2012) Openweb announced that they are also providing better value to ADSL users with their new capped, unshaped ADSL data bundles. On larger data bundles Openweb’s pricing drops to below R8 per GB.

  • 1GB – R19 (R19/GB)
  • 2GB – R38 (R19/GB)
  • 5GB – R78 (R15.60/GB)
  • 10GB – R148 (R14.80/GB)
  • 50GB – R398 (R7.96/GB)
  • 100GB – R798 (R7.98/GB)

“Telkom have dropped their IPC charges. ISP’s have been waiting for this drop for a long time. We thought the consumer should not wait any longer for cheaper rates,” said Keoma Wright, Founder of OpenWeb.co.za.

Axxess is also passing some of the benefits of lower wholesale ADSL rates on to their subscribers in the form of an ADSL top-up promotion.

Axxess’ Easter promotion, which will run until midnight on 9 April, provides subscribers with ADSL top-up accounts which will offer ‘2 for the price of 1’ up to ‘5 for the price of 1’ accounts. This means that pricing can go down to R3.80 per GB on some of the promotions.

Axxess marketing director Franco Barbalich told MyBroadband that these values may change, hinting that consumers can expect even more value over the promotion period.
