Moving from ADSL to LTE
Axxess’ new fixed-LTE products come after Telkom has started to discontinue ADSL products across the country.
Telkom is moving ADSL customers to newer technologies in an effort to save maintenance costs on its ADSL network and offer customers a better service.
In areas where there is no fibre connectivity, the plan is to move current ADSL and VDSL subscribers to fixed-LTE.
Fixed-LTE is not susceptible to problems like cable theft and offers higher average speeds than ADSL.
Many ISPs, including Webafrica, MWEB, and Axxess have now launched their own Telkom fixed-LTE products which should make the migration process easier.
