Telkom is one of the best-known brands in South Africa, providing telecommunications services in the country for 26 years.
Telkom was founded on 1 October 1991, when the Department of Posts and Telecommunications was divided in three:
- The Department of Posts and Telecommunications
- Telkom SA
- The South African Post Office
Telkom was the only fixed-line provider in SA until Neotel was launched on 31 August 2006.
Its copper-based telephony and DSL services were its cornerstone, and it now has a wide catalogue of telecoms products in the consumer, business, and enterprise market.
