Spring is all but sprung and the welcomed heat of summer is nearly upon us. This signifies many things to different people. For some, the change in season means the motivation to shed those extra layers of clothing (and winter fat), while others will be heading to beaches and parks to soak up the rays. 

For Telkom, it marks one of their most promising Deal of the Month campaign to date, with a tempting amount of wireless data on offer as part of the SmartBroadband Wireless package for October. Priced at R199 for a 24-month contract, here's what the offer entails. 

A new season

Each month, Telkom serves up a deal for one of its wireless broadband packages, and this time around, they have 15 GB of data in total on offer. This is split three ways, between 5 GB of Mobile data, as well as 5 GB of Night Surfer and 5 GB of Anytime data thrown into the mix. Not to mention, the addition of a Huawei router too, all of which costs an enticing total of R199 per month for a 24-month long contract. 

Along with ushering in the welcome change of season, the Telkom October exclusive deal also highlights the affordable and fast LTE connectivity that this service provider can deliver to its customers. The aforementioned Huawei B315 Wi-Fi router provides access to both LTE and Gigabit Ethernet networks, and has the ability to turn your entire home into a high-speed LTE hotspot, able to connect up to 32 different devices. 

Having access to the country's best LTE network is simply too good to pass up, but Telkom does advise interested users to check out the LTE coverage map before purchasing. If you're living in South Africa's major cities - Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, LTE connectivity should be fast and accessible.   

Get to it

Along with making it easier for more people to access Telkom's high-speed LTE network, they've also bundled together 5 GB of standard Anytime data with 5 GB of Night Surfer data, with the latter running between 12:00 AM to 7:00 AM, perfect for downloading movies and series from platforms like Netflix. Furthermore, Telkom has sweetened the deal by adding 5 GB of Mobile data, which is perfect for browsing on the go. 

There is one provision, however, the deal requires you to act quickly. The October exclusive promotion is only valid for the first 1000 people that sign up for the package during this month. This means that time is of the essence, and if you're interested in the deal, you need to sign up for it now, as those 1000 spots will fill up quickly.  

With time running out on this deal, stop faffing around and sign up. As always, T's and C's do apply, so check out the latest Deal of the Month here.
