With the pricing of modern technologies such as ADSL becoming more affordable to the lower end data users, @lantic took it upon itself to fast track the migration from dialup to ADSL by offering current dialup users the option to switch to ADSL at an extremely competitive price.
This will mean that dialup users can enjoy the benefits of ADSL and everything the internet has to offer at a similar price to what they are currently paying for their dialup connection, said Dederick Venter, Sales and Marketing Director at @lantic.
ADSL Barrier to Entry Broken by Affrodable Services
ADSL Evolve makes ADSL services accessible and affordable to dialup customers by providing the customer with an all-in-one ADSL access solution without the initial upfront investment. ADSL Evolve includes a 384kbps ADSL line and router, adds Venter.
@lantic also handles the ADSL line application on behalf of the customer making it a seamless change over from dialup to ADSL.
ADSL Evolve is priced at a monthly subscription fee of R60.00 over 12 months and data usage is charged at 10 cents per MB. Dialup customers will now be able to pay only for data they use instead of being billed for every minute they are online. This means that customers will save monthly on their ADSL subscription with the discounted line rental which most South African ISPs offer at R152 per month. To activate the ADSL Evolve service, a once off fee of R99.00 is charged.
The Router That Helped Break the ADSL Barrier to Entry
The router supplied with the ADSL Evolve package is linked at an auto configuration server making it a simple plug and play solution. The router is a single port Billion 5210s RC router/modem, but customers do have the option of upgrading the router to a Billion 5200G RC 4 port wireless router for an additional R30.00 per month subscription and R50.00 setup fee.
Other features, that broke the ADSL barrier to entry, include VoIP compatibility and 100MB Hotspot data per month at designated Hotspot/Wi-Fi zones such as local airports, hotels and coffee shops marked with the Always-On Wi-Fi logo.
