Telkom Business has adjusted pricing on its Internet product portfolio to introduce better value to its uncapped offerings.

South African SMEs can look forward to bandwidth increases on the entry-level offerings and up to 27% reduction in prices on the higher-end usage offerings. Effectively, customers on entry level 384 and 1024 Uncapped Internet usage products will be upgraded to 1024 and 2048 Uncapped Internet respectively at no additional cost.

The new prices on usage products and value bundles are effective immediately while speed upgrades will commence automatically from 24 August 2012.

““Telkom Business remains committed to enabling small and medium business customers with high quality internet services. Today, we have not only increased value but we have also slashed prices,” says Thami Magazi, managing executive: SME services at Telkom Business.

“Over the last six months, we’ve recorded a 105% increase in internet usage from our retail customers over Telkom Internet. This includes increased activity by small and medium enterprises customers who are integrating high speed Internet into their daily operations.”

Magazi suggests that the increase in fixed bandwidth was enabled by the introduction of high quality uncapped Internet last year which has facilitated the uptake of more sophisticated business applications such as collaborative email, document sharing and web-hosting or cloud storage tools.

These product updates follow the recent announcement by the company on the upgrade of entry-level ADSL speeds to enable new generation consumer content and business applications in a more cost effective manner.
