Telkom terminates uncapped Do Gaming ADSL add-on

Telkom’s current Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) offerings are now cheaper than its ADSL.

The biggest reason for the discrepancy is obvious: FTTH products don’t require any forced analogue line rental.

This has resulted in calls from major ISPs like Web Africa and MWEB for Telkom to offer a “naked ADSl” option which will hoepfully reduce costs and result in a larger uptake.

The table below shows the total price of DSL and FTTH access, based on Axxess’s latest prices:

Service Speed Line Rental Total Access Price (No Data)
FTTH 4Mbps No line rental R399
ADSL 4Mbps R189 R464
FTTH 8Mbps No line rental R459
ADSL 8Mbps R189 R544
FTTH 10Mbps No line rental R499
ADSL 10Mbps R189 R584
FTTH 20Mbps No line rental R599
VDSL 20Mbps R189 R614
FTTH 40Mbps No line rental R699
VDSL 40Mbps R189 R724
