Telkom Internet to launch high speed broadband pilotBy Staff Writer 5 October 2012 | Categories: news
Want broadband speeds of up to 40 Mbps at no extra cost? Well, if you are a Telkom Internet customer, you might just get lucky. Telkom Internet is inviting qualifying customers in designated areas to participate in the Telkom high speed broadband pilot programme at no additional charge.
Broadband speeds of up to 40 Mbps will be tested in the pilot where Telkom has deployed new generation access network kits. This include in five areas in three provinces: Benmore Gardens, Fourways and Waterkloof in Gauteng; Durban North in Kwa-Zulu Natal and Durbanville in the Western Cape.
Telkom Internet customers in these areas who are making use of an up to 4/10 Mbps broadband service may qualify to participate in the pilot programme at no additional charge, subject to certain technical limitations that may apply in individual instances. Qualifying customers must volunteer and sign an agreement to participate in the trial.
These customers will be supplied with a free VDSL (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line) router in order to test the broadband speeds. This VDSL router will not be required to be returned upon the completion of the technical trial.
Don’t get too attached to your super-fast speed though, since all participating customers will revert to their original broadband speeds and services upon completion of the technical trial, luckily only at the end of January 2013.
