Uncapped ADSL speed upgrades for free


Axxess announced today (28 October 2013) that it will upgrade all its uncapped ADSL accounts free of charge, which coincides with Telkom’s planned ADSL line speed upgrades.

“With the announcement that Telkom will be increasing broadband ADSL connection speeds over the next few months, we are taking the initiative by upgrading uncapped account speeds free of charge,” Axxess said.

“Axxess clients will be the first to benefit from this revolutionary move, giving them the opportunity to experience faster, better ADSL speeds once the Telkom upgrade is complete.”

Axxess explained that, as an example, 4Mbps uncapped ADSL clients will be upgraded free of charge to 10Mbps.

The following table provides an overview of the new uncapped ADSL prices from Axxess.

Speed 384kbps 1Mbps 2Mbps 4Mbps 10Mbps 20Mbps 40Mbps
Old price R165 R195 R295 R375 R675 R995 R1395
New price R165 R195 R295 R375 R675 R995

  • Gwarnar

    About two weeks ago Afrihost told me they’re in discussion
    regarding the upgrade, and that they probably will upgrade their clients for
    free, but Axxess get to grab a few roaming clients as they announced it first

    Definitely. I’m really hoping MWEB follows suit.

    Seems like they did not last time, I was bumped up to 1Mb/s then 2Mb/s upgrades where done I was kept at 1Mb/s but my line synced at 2.

    In short. It is a line upgrade not a data upgrade.

    Same with me. It’s never a given. Still, if other companies are doing it, perhaps they’ll match their actions merely to prevent their gaining a competitive advantage.

    I’m pretty sure most ISPs will make the jump. Don’t forget, the industry is very competitive! No ISP wants to be left out in the cold!

    Mweb Guy: we are currently revisiting our ADSL pricing across the product range, in light of the recent news that Telkom will be doing free line speed bumps as of November we have had to take that into consideration as well. We are busy reviewing this at this stage. We are aware of the other offerings in the market space and we would greatly appreciate your patience while we come up with a solution.
