This deal that is available until 31 March 2016 is equivalent to 1000GB of data.
The telco said in a statement that the offer, which is subject to the signing of a new broadband bundle contract, is priced from R249/month over 36 months for its ADSL line of up to 2Mbps including a SoftCap data allocation of 10GB/month, in addition to the free data.
Customers who sign up for the offer will receive 28GB every month for 36 months, to total one million megabytes over the entire period, as well as 10GB SoftCap data every month. Those on faster lines are able to sign up for the same product, but the cost will differ according to the line speed.
“We’re consistently looking for ways to bring big business communication functionality to our small and medium business customers. Access to affordable broadband and data offerings play a vital role especially for businesses that want to make that shift to digital communication from traditional voice-only communication in their operations,” says Thami Magazi, Telkom’s managing executive for SMBS.
The base offer of R249 per month also includes free broadband access for the final two months of the contract period, a Wi-Fi modem and additional 10 GB promotional data (as per Telkom Internet’s current Double Data promotion which runs till end March 2016). Customers also receive free internet failover utilising Telkom’s unique integrated data sim that allows access to the data wallet through 3G mobile connectivity. As part of the package, customers will also be offered a two-hour remote website consultation that will assist with website effectiveness.
