Telkom is currently promoting its “Completely Unlimited” SIM-only mobile plan, offering unlimited calls, unlimited Telkom data and unlimited SMSes for R999 per month on a 24 month contract.
Consumers also have the option of adding a high-end smartphone to the package – including a Samsung Galaxy S5 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – and pay R1,399 per month.
Telkom’s previous SIM-only price for its “Completely Unlimited” mobile plan was R1,199 per month, which means that users can save R200 per month when signing up during the promotional period.
“No matter how much you use on your phone, you will never pay a cent over R999 per month. That’s the true definition of unlimited,” said Telkom.
Telkom highlighted that the unlimited data is only available on Telkom’s mobile network – hence where it has coverage and not when roaming on the MTN network.
The terms and conditions for the Completely Unlimited plan also state that the “unlimited data” is subject to a 10 Gigabyte (GB) fair use policy.
“The speed shall be throttled to 128kbps if a subscriber reaches a data usage soft cap of 10GB before the end of the month,” according to the T&Cs. “The speed shall be reset to normal speed at the beginning of each calendar month alternatively subscribers can purchase once off or recurring data bundles.”
The company also said that the unlimited calls exclude international calls and premium-rated numbers.
The promotional price is valid until 20 November 2014.
