JOHANNESBURG: TELKOM is extending its SmartBroadband Uncapped High Speed Wireless packages to select Long Term Evolution (LTE) base stations across 520 sites in the country. The sites are in Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West and Western Cape.
The exercise is an extension of the original phase and it will be available with immediate effect to June 30 next year. "We have seen such an uptake on these offers in Gauteng that we now see the roll out of the third phase officially making this a national offer," said Attila Vitai, managing director of Telkom Mobile and Consumer.
"This is a one-of-a-kind offering in South Africa and it means that we continue to drive better value for our customers in innovative ways." Customers will be able to access this offer through Telkom's online channels, at Telkom stores or via Telkom's direct sales force, on a 24 month contract at prices starting at R599.
These packages are being rolled out to other areas in South Africa on the back of its success in Gauteng since its launch in June this year. The uncapped high speed package allows customers to access the web at high speeds with peace of mind that their bill will not increase regardless of their usage.
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.
The introductory offer will start at R599 for the first 50 customers (only available online), 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.
