Uncapped ADSL pricing comparison

On Tuesday 17 April MWEB slashed the price of its 1Mbps uncapped ADSL data accounts from R299 per month to R199 per month. It was not long before the other ISPs responded.

On the same day Openweb announced that it was reducing the price of its uncapped products as well, and the next day launched its first 10Mbps uncapped ADSL product priced at R1,649 per month.

Later in the week Axxess followed suit, reducing the price of their 1Mbps uncapped ADSL service to R196 per month and also cutting the price of its 384kbps service to R169 per month.

The new products and lower prices raise the question of how the various ISPs offering uncapped products compare on price.

The following table provides an overview of the main uncapped products from the country’s largest residential ISPs.
