ADSL remains a popular broadband choice among high-end Internet users, partly because of the wide range of affordable uncapped and large-cap services available in the market.
While mobile broadband services offer higher peak speeds than current ADSL products, the cost associated with large-cap mobile products are high compared to ADSL products.
The fiercely competitive ADSL ISP market means that there are numerous capped and uncapped products available.
These ADSL ISP products are surprisingly affordable when looking at the input costs which include Telkom’s IPC service, national and international bandwidth, and general support.
