The fibre and broadband service provider, Supersonic, has confirmed that some new packages are specifically targeted at businesses that have a displaced workforce. It hopes that these deals might encourage more people to self-isolate to avoid spreading the coronavirus.
With more and more people choosing to work from home in the midst of a (potential) shutdown of the country, plenty of us are looking to our internet service providers and wondering whether or not they have any plans to help those of us stuck inside with our constant online surfing. Yet for businesses, the need for employees to have Internet access is more important than ever, especially considering how far and wide many of them are scattered. Fortunately, Supersonic has a plan. Several, in fact.
To accommodate businesses that have been forced to implement a “work from home” strategy in these times of pandemic, Supersonic has announced a new bespoke range of Internet packages to ensure that employees can stay online and work effectively. The packages are listed below:
|30/30GB anytime/night-time + Router
|R249 per month
|60/60GB anytime/night-time + Router
|R399 per month
|100/100GB anytime/night-time + Router
|R599 per month
|150/150GB anytime/night-time + Router
|R799 per month
|200/200GB anytime/night-time + Router
|R999 per month
And for those of you that need to make plenty of phone calls a day, Supersonic has you covered on that front too:
|1000 inclusive minutes to any SA destination plus handset*
|R299 per month
|2000 inclusive minutes to any SA destination plus handset*

“Remote access is not a new concept although businesses operating with an entirely remote workforce is,” said Calvin Collett, Managing Director for Supersonic in a press release. “Fortunately, we’re in the business of connecting people as simply and as efficiently as possible, so we’re able to create and launch these specific products to meet a dire need for companies to – under the circumstances, operate ‘business as usual’ as much as possible,” he continued.
So if you’re an employer that desperately needs to get their workforce online as they work from the comfort of their own homes, maybe consider checking in with Supersonic because from what we’ve seen, these deals are actually pretty decent. Vumatel also announced that it will increase fibre-to-the-home speeds at no extra cost for two months.
