Telkom has made available a list of the new suburbs that will get “uncapped” 4G/LTE broadband when the product offering is expanded from next week.
The telecommunications operator said on Friday that it is expanding its “uncapped” wireless offering to 200 additional sites in Gauteng, from just 29 before.
“Telkom today announced that it will be rolling out the second phase of SmartBroadband Uncapped High Speed Wireless packages to more than 200 additional areas in Gauteng. The online sale will take place on 7 September to offer the uncapped packages to customers on a 24-month contract at prices starting at R599,” the operator said in a statement.
The plan is eventually to offer the service countrywide, said Telkom mobile and consumer MD Attila Vitai. Customers signing up for the deal will receive an antenna and installation by Telkom technicians at no additional cost, it added.
“The second phase of the online sale will be focused on selected base stations in Gauteng from 7 September to 30 November and will be rolled out to additional locations in the Western Cape and Durban in the following months. Eligible locations in Western Cape and Durban will be announced towards the end of the year.”
A Web page will go live on 7 September with details of the plans, Telkom said. As before, 150 spots will be available per base stations. The introductory offer will start at R599 for the first 50 customers, R699 for the second 50 and R799 for the final 50 available packages at each base station.
