Uncapped ADSL prices compared: Telkom vs the rest

Telkom announced on 24 January 2013 that it will reduce its consumer uncapped ADSL products by up to 40%. These price cuts will apply to both standalone and bundled ADSL products.

Telkom’s new uncapped ADSL prices surprised many consumers and Internet Service Providers (ISPs) as they undercut most existing offers in the market.

Telkom’s bundled uncapped offerings (which include an ADSL line and an uncapped account) are particularly aggressively priced.

Telkom’s new uncapped ADSL prices already have many ADSL users looking at moving their accounts to Telkom.

“This is actually brilliant! Yes, we all want naked ADSL but this can only be good for all of us as we will save. ISP’s have to respond to this somehow,” said one commentator. “Sheesh those [prices] aren’t bad. Might move,” said another.

This raises the question of how Telkom’s new uncapped ADSL prices compare with other ISPs.  The following table answers this question.
