Telkom 40Mbps VDSL: minimum and maximum speeds

Telkom will launch its 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL services on 4 March 2013, increasing the peak DSL speed in the country fourfold.

Telkom’s new VDSL products also increase the peak upload speeds from the current 1Mbps (on a 10Mbps ADSL service) to 3Mbps (on a 40Mbps VDSL service).

However, Telkom highlights that the new VDSL products are best effort services, which offers speeds of ‘up to’ 20Mbps and ‘up to’ 40Mbps.

This raises the question what the minimum and maximum speeds are for Telkom’s new VDSL products.

The following table provides an overview of the minimum and maximum upstream and downstream speeds for Telkom’s 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL offerings.

xDSL Service Maximum Downstream Speed Minimum Downstream Speed Maximum Upstream Speed Minimum Upstream Speed
Up to 10 Mbps xDSL 10Mbps 8Mbps 1Mbps 512kbps
Up to 20 Mbps xDSL 20Mbps 11Mbps 2Mbps 1Mbps
