Telkom’s cellular arm, 8ta, announced reduced broadband rates of up to 25% for its once-off and postpaid Internet packages.
In addition to the price slash, the operator has revised its contract terms to include month-to-month, 12- and 24-month terms. The 12- and 24-month contracts include a modem, while the month-to-month contract does not.
8ta says it has tailored its Internet packages for new and existing customers. Managing executive of Telkom Mobile Amith Maharaj says existing Internet subscribers will automatically be migrated to the new price plans. “After their contracts are up for renewal, they can also opt to subscribe on a month-to-month or 12-month contract basis.”
Once the monthly recurring postpaid Internet package has been depleted, users will be charged an out-of-bundle rate of R 0.30 per MB, while the once-off Internet subscribers will be charged an out-of bundle rate of R1 per MB.
Subscribers will also have access to a free 8ta e-mail account with a 5GB mailbox, giving them access to 25GB of online storage and free access to online Microsoft Office suite, which includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint. In addition, postpaid and once-off subscribers will be able to send five SMSes daily, and receive 50 free SMSes to use on that day.
