MWeb has teamed up with MTN to offer consumers two product bundles that include both fixed digital subscriber line (DSL) and 3G broadband access for a single, monthly fee.
The company has created two bundles. The first consists of a 384kbit/s DSL data package with a 2GB cap and a 2GB MTN 3G package and costs R199/month. The second, aimed at the higher end of the market, includes an uncapped 384kbit/s data package and an “Uncapped Lite” MTN 3G package for R499/month.
MTN’s “Uncapped Lite” allows users 3GB of 3G data per month at full connection speeds, and access to 3G at severely throttled speeds thereafter.
Both packages include an ADSL router and a USB 3G modem. Customers will have access to a 2GB mailbox, 5GB of online file storage and free uncapped hosting for a year.
Derek Hershaw, CEO of MWeb’s Internet service provider business, says it is increasingly necessary for consumers to remain connected to the Internet both at home and on the move.
