As has been the trend in ISPs the past week, Telkom has also confirmed that it’s in the process of updating it’s fibre packages and upgrading internet speeds for its customers. Fibre speeds are being doubled across the board while those users who are having their speeds upgraded won’t need to pay extra for the upgrade. This follows suite with Openserve, Mweb, and Axxess all offering improved bundle rates as well as free upgrades. If there was ever a time to make the leap to fibre, it seems like now would be a great idea.
Starting from 25 March, Telkom users already on the FTTH (fibre-to-the-home) will have their line speed upgraded while newer users can get in on the service with some excellent deals such as 25/5Mbps Uncapped fibre for just R400 per month.
But enough of the gabbing, you probably want to know what those new prices look like, right? Fortunately for you we have a sweet little list of all the new deals:
Telkom FTTH Home Unlimited bundle price updates
- 10/5Mbps upgraded to 25/5Mbps for R400pm
- 10/10Mbps upgraded to 25/25Mbps) for R450pm
- 20Mbps upgraded to 50Mbps for R700 (the same price)
- 50Mbps upgraded to 100Mbps for R900 (the same price)
