Telkom introduces uncapped high speed wireless broadband packages

By Staff Writer

Telkom on Thursday announced that it will be rolling out the first phase of SmartBroadband Uncapped High Speed Wireless packages to select areas in Gauteng.

An online sale will take place on 10 June to offer the uncapped packages to customers on a 24 month contract at prices starting at R599.

As part of the promotional offer, customers will also receive an antenna and installation by Telkom technicians at no additional cost.

Promotional packages will be capped at 150 per base station to ensure a high quality customer experience with the service.

“We are rolling out this unique sale for SmartBroadband Uncapped High Speed Wireless Broadband to provide high-quality service to our customers at a price that is unrivaled in the market,” said Attila Vitai, managing director of Telkom Mobile and Consumer. “The uncapped high speed package means that customers can access the web at high speeds with peace of mind that their bill will not increase regardless of their usage.”

The online sale will initially be focused on selected base stations in Gauteng from 10 June to 10 July and will be rolled out to additional locations in the following months. The online sale portal will be live and available on the Telkom website http://www.telkommobile.co.za/smartbroadband-uncapped-wireless from 10 June and includes a dashboard and coverage map with the select LTE areas that are eligible for the sale. On the coverage map, physical addresses can be entered to determine whether or not a customer is eligible to participate in the sale and claim one of the 150 spots available per base station.telkommobile

The introductory offer will start at R599 for the first 50 customers, R699 for the second 50 and R799 for the final 50 available packages at each base station. Telkom’s SmartBroadband Uncapped High Speed Wireless service includes uncapped data for all traffic types. Normal fair usage policies will be applied.

Customers who participate in the online sale after the 150 spots have already been taken, will be added to a waiting list. Existing Telkom customers in the select areas will have the opportunity to transition to the new packages depending on availability at each base station.

The select areas were based on where Telkom had excess LTE capacity available. Customers outside of the initial select areas can still take advantage of Telkom’s other high speed broadband packages and have the opportunity to transition to the offer should it become available in their location at a later stage.

LTE stands for Long Term Evolution (LTE) which is a wireless broadband technology. LTE is the latest generation of mobile technology and is a step up from 3G technology offering faster network Downlink and Uplink speeds. With Telkom’s LTE network, customers can expect up to 90Mbps download speed and up to 25Mbps upload speed.

The online sale portal and the list of eligible LTE locations can be found at http://www.telkommobile.co.za/smartbroadband-uncapped-wireless
