TELKOM SA LAUNCHES USD33 A MONTH "ALWAYS-ON" HOME ADSL SERVICE

Internet

  Telkom SA has launched the TelkomInternet powered by ADSL Standard package, offering customers a combination of e-mail and always-available Internet services at reduced cost.

The TelkomInternet powered by ADSL Standard package is a no-frills package offered with the 2 GB (gigabyte) Shaped service. It includes one e-mail account and 5 aliases, one username and password. The package does not allow concurrent sessions, and does not include web space.

The Internet package, which costs R199 per month, complements Telkom's recently launched HomeDSL384 service, which offers home users an always-available connection to the Internet at a fixed-monthly fee of R449.

"Market research has shown that there is a requirement for a more suitable package that complements the recently introduced Telkom HomeDSL 384 access service," says Nombulelo Moholi, Telkom's Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.

"The combination of both services provides customers with always-available access to the Internet for under R700 per month. And unlike dial-up services there are no recurring call costs," Moholi said.
