Free Telkom ADSL speed upgrades

Telkom Internet and Telkom Business announced today (31 October 2013) Internet speed upgrades for existing consumer and business customers. This follows the recently announced ADSL line speed increases for all Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

“Effectively, we are doubling the entry level DSL speeds in the market. The increased speeds allow for improved video streaming, online gaming and video conferencing by reducing buffering and latency,” said Manelisa Mavuso, Managing Director of Consumer Services and Retail at Telkom.

Telkom said that these improvements are part of the company’s network transformation programme and a more aggressive positioning of their retail ISP.

The latest announcement follows the evolution of capped services to Softcap, promotions on social media, gaming and movie packages and differentiation of business and home usage products.

“Telkom Internet is revising its data usage offers, especially on its uncapped products, to be in-line with the improved DSL portfolio,” Telkom said.

Telkom Internet customers who are currently on the SoftCap package will benefit from a double speed upgrade at no extra cost.

“The improved quality of experience does come with nominal fee adjustments, for uncapped users,” Telkom said.

“Depending on the specific package, there will either be an increase or a decrease in your overall monthly fee,” explained Mavuso.

“Where there is an increase, it is important to note that this is far less than the actual value that customers are getting at the end of the day.”
