Telkom started offering 50GB broadband bundles for R699 across four broadband technologies from 1 June – the first operator in South Africa to do so.
The broadband bundles will be available to retail customers over Telkom’s FTTH, LTE-A, LTE, and xDSL networks.
The new bundles are part of Telkom’s focus to increase high-speed broadband penetration across different broadband technologies and across the country.
Telkom said it is focusing on growing its national high-speed broadband footprint, while improving the experience of its customers and increasing customer value.
The new 50GB broadband bundles are available on 24-month contracts and include a free Wi-Fi router.
Customers who take up the Fibre or xDSL offer will also receive a free DStv Explora Decoder, while stock lasts.
Retail customers who are currently on the Do Premium Bundle will also benefit from the new price.
Depending on the broadband network bundles, customers can receive up to 150Mbps on LTE-A, 90Mbps on LTE, 10Mbps on Fibre, and 10Mbps on xDSL.
