Telkom applies for ADSL broadband price cut
Telkom announced on Monday that it filed for a cut in ADSL broadband internet rental of up to 32 percent and an overall price cut of two-point-one percent with the independent telecommunications authority, Icasa. If approved, the price changes will take effect on the 1st of August. Despite inflationary pressures, local call charges remain unchanged. The price of long distance calls have been reduced by 10 percent. Telkom’s Steven Hayward says although the net impact of the proposed prices will vary among customers, depending on the types of services they use, the overall effect will be a reduction in the cost of telecommunications.
