All Telkom customers are set to receive double their Telkom Internet data allocation for free from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016, the company announced.
“The demand for data is infinite and our efforts are geared to offering our customers as much value as we possibly can to satisfy this demand,” said managing director of Telkom Mobile and Consumer Attila Vitai.
“Not only are we increasing data values but we have also reviewed and reduced the prices on our top data products.”
“For example, we have reduced the price of our 500GB product from R2,495 to R1,599 – now with our double data promotion customers will receive 1TB of data for R1,599.”
Telkom’s data TopUp rates have also been reduced and the double data promotion also applies to TopUp options.
Telkom also announced the return of its TI Entertainment add-on for R99 per month, which offers uncapped data to selected content sites including Apple TV, iTunes, and DSTV online services such as BoxOffice and CatchUp.
