A spokesperson for Telkom said that the commercial launch of its 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL products in March 2013 will initially be in the same regions as the VDSL pilot areas, namely around the 52 upgraded street distribution cabinets.
Telkom is currently piloting its high speed VDSL broadband service in Benmore Gardens, Fourways and Waterkloof in Gauteng; Durban North in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Durbanville in the Western Cape.
Telkom said that the number of areas where its 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL services are available will grow over time as roll-out progresses.
The company further confirmed that there will be a tracker where users can check whether their exchange is 20Mbps and 40Mbps enabled.
