    Now I know why people hate contracts so much. I signed up for one because it was the cheapest way to get both data and a router, one of the monthly deals was the same contract but a third cheaper, now people signing up for the same contract will get twice the data. I don't even know how to feel

    Dear Telkom

    Its time you start sweating your network a little and let the cash roll in.

    1.Make this double data permanent.
    2.Ensure it works seamless on prepaid.
    3.Make the Data valid for 90 days.
    4.Market it well - TV - Social Media - Papers
    5.Roll out more towers where demand is great.
    6.Throw in free calls Telkom 2 Telkom

    Then

    1. Sit back and start collecting the Cash.
    2. Improve customer service at your stores.
    3. Improve the network as demand grows.
    4. Have specials for every 500 000 customer free Internet for life 500 Gigabytes per month - Market it very well.

    I will give you R700 per month if the above is in order.

    1 Million other customers will also do the same. Thats a Billion a Month

    Go for it Because you can

    Just saw this now. If I knew I would have bought a 10GB+10GB bundle for the rest of the month. Instead I purchased their 2GB for R139.

    Is the 40gig also valid for 30 days?

    Madness. This deal is apparently online only, so they turned me away after queuing for 30m in my local store (as I know how useless the call centres are).

    I did the online application, but there is a problem with their outbound dialer causing to drop the call each time they try to phone my Telkom Mobile cell.

    In typical Telkom fashion I've wasted hours trying to get through to the sales department in their endless loops of escalations, and all I get them from them is a snarky automated email saying 'we couldn't get hold of you, please apply again'.

    A terrible waste of time and energy...

    So I finally managed to cancel my Telkom LTE month to month contact.... Got home today all eager to buy a voucher via ussd and the SIM is completely dead. Doesn't connect to network so no ussd or onnet.telkom. I guess tomo I will need to go buy a new Telkom sim.... What do I need to buy a SIM again? Proof of address only?

    Default Telkom launches LTE double-data promotion

    Hi guys. Iíve got a prepaid Telkom SIM which I use for my daily phone. Some calls and some WhatsApp and surfing.

    Is it possible to swap my calling plan from Telkom More to the Smartbroadband to take advantage of the double data deal??

    Yup, that's exactly what I did and it worked. Only problem is speeds have started to go to utter shyte starting around midnight and going back to normal at 7 AM. So the night time data is essentially worthless at the moment.

    quite strange that they allowing that... I didn't think that someone would respond with your answer!

    Have you tried to change back to Telkom More plan?
