Wireless telecommunications operator iBurst has slashed the price of bandwidth on its network and introduced its first “uncapped” Internet products.
The company says it is introducing two uncapped products, the first priced at R599/month and the second at R879/month.
The cheaper of the two packages offers a 1Mbit/s connection and 1GB/day of usage, after which the speed is throttled down to 256kbit/s (for R99 extra, no throttling will apply for a 24-hour period).
The second package is limited to 3GB/day (after which it’s throttled to 384kbit/s) and comes with a 2Mbit/s modem. The R99 booster applies if that limit is exceeded.
Traffic shaping applies, except between midnight and 8am. Peer-to-peer networks like BitTorrent will be shaped down to 5kbit/s at all other times.
The company has also launched new capped data products, ranging in price from R49/month for 1GB of data and R445 for 25GB of data (plus 25GB of data for use between midnight and 8am). A 10GB monthly bundle is available for R149.
Modems are included for customers signing 24-month contracts.
Subscribers will not be migrated automatically to the new packages. Rather, they will have to request this through iBurst’s call centre or website.
