ADSL prices slashed – who is the cheapest?

The ADSL market kicked off with a bang in 2014, with many ISPs announcing lower prices on their ADSL accounts and ADSL bundles.

Last week Afrihost launched its new “capped DSL double data” promotion, offering their capped ADSL subscribers double their monthly data allowance at the same price. Afrihost also reduced the price of its pre-paid and top-up prices last week.

Not to be outdone, Axxess announced on Thursday, 13 March 2014 that it will drop the cost of top-ups for its capped ADSL customers from R19 per Gigabyte (GB) to R7/GB.

This announcement followed Axxess’ “Big capped ADSL price drop” announcement on 26 February 2014.

Earlier this year Web Africa unveiled its new capped ADSL packages, slashing the price of its previous products and offering data at rates of as low as R1.50 per GB.

This raises the question as to which ISP offers the best capped ADSL deal in the market. The following tables provide an overview of the latest capped ADSL prices in the market.
