Internet service provider MWEB is introducing new throttled uncapped ADSL products, in response to market demand for cheaper uncapped ADSL.
This comes after Telkom announced last week that it will be cutting its uncapped ADSL prices.
MWEB’s new products will complement its existing Premium Uncapped ADSL product suite, and will be available to South African consumers from 1 February 2013.
MWEB’s new up to 2Mbps and up to 4Mbps Data Only and Data Plus ADSL line offerings will be R10 cheaper than Telkom’s new prices.
MWEB’s 1Mbps Premium Uncapped ADSL pricing remains unchanged at R199pm for Data Only and R339pm for Data Plus ADSL line. Unlike 1Mbps competitor offerings, this product will remain unthrottled.
“While MWEB has always promoted an unthrottled, uncapped connection as being the best way to experience the Internet, we have recognised that there is some demand for cheaper, throttled Uncapped accounts and have therefore extended our product range to cater for this,” says Derek Hershaw, CEO of MWEB ISP.
