|Telkom Business slashes ADSL prices|
Monday, 25 June 2012 13:45
The fixed-line operator cuts ADSL prices for SME customers, and speed upgrades are set to commence on 24 August.
South African SMEs will receive more bandwidth on entry-level offerings, and up to 27% lower prices on the higher end usage offerings through Telkom Business, SA`s fixed-line operator has announced.
Telkom Business said on Friday that it would up its uncapped offerings and introduce “significant price adjustments” to its Internet product portfolio. The company says customers on entry-level 384 and 1024 uncapped Internet usage products will be upgraded to 1024 and 2048 uncapped Internet respectively, at no additional cost.
“The new prices on usage products and value bundles are effective immediately, while speed upgrades will commence automatically from 24 August.”
Thami Magazi, Telkom`s managing executive of SME services, says the company has recorded a 105% increase in Internet usage from retail customers over the last six months. “This includes increased activity by small and medium enterprise customers who are integrating high-speed Internet into their daily operations.”
Magazi suggests the increase in fixed bandwidth was enabled by the introduction of “high-quality uncapped Internet” last year. He says this has facilitated the uptake of more sophisticated business applications, such as collaborative e-mail, document sharing and Web hosting or cloud storage tools.
The latest product updates follow Telkom`s announcement earlier this month that it would upgrade its entry-level ADSL speeds, progressively between August and September.
Magazi says the latest package adjustments will help business customers enhance their ICT experience by boosting productivity.
