Telkom customers are set to receive double their Telkom Internet data allocation for free from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016.

This means that customers on Telkom’s largest SoftCap package will now receive 1Tbof data per month.

“The demand for data is infinite and our efforts are geared to offering our customers as much value as we possibly can to satisfy this demand,” says Attila Vitai, Telkom’s MD for Mobile and Consumer. “Not only are we increasing data values but we have also reviewed and reduced the prices on our top data products. For example, we have reduced the price of our 500Gb product from R2495 to R1599 – now with our double data promotion customers will receive 1Tb of data for R1599.”

Telkom’s data TopUp rates have also been reduced and the double data promotion also applies to TopUp options.

The company also announced the return of its popular “TI Entertainment” add on for R99 per month which offers customers an uncapped experience to selected content sites including Apple TV, iTunes and   DSTV online services such as BoxOffice and CatchUp.

“This summer we will be leveraging our powerful fixed- mobile convergence capabilities to ensure that customers awaiting installations and certain customers in high fault zones are able to access their monthly fixed data allocation to connect to the Internet using the on-net Telkom Mobile network,” Vitai says.

The Telkom Integrated Data service will be targeted at certain customers and requires a Telkom Internet SIM card with specific configuration setting to enable the alternative access and to set up modems and devices for use or fail over.
