Telkom ADSL pricing: What you will pay from August

Telkom unveiled their new tariffs recently, which included a price increase on all of Telkom’s ADSL access services. Telkom is also increasing the price of its analogue line rental which forms part of any ADSL service.

The monthly rental fees on Telkom’s DSL products will increase as follows: Fast DSL will increase to R165.00; Faster DSL will increase to R299.00 and Fastest DSL will increase to R425.00.

Postpaid residential and business line rental increase by 6%. The installation charges including postpaid, PrepaidFone, ISDN, and DSL services will also increase by 6%.

However, the monthly rental fees on Telkom’s Do Broadband bundles remain unchanged.

This means that all ADSL customers can expect to receive a higher ADSL bill from Telkom, irrespective which ADSL service they use.
