Local mobile broadband provider, 8.ta has today announced reduced broadband pricing rates for its Once-Off Internet packages as well as its Post-paid Internet packages. In addition to this 8ta has also revised its contract terms which now include month to month, 12 and 24 months terms. The month to month contract excludes a modem while the 12 and 24 months contracts will include a modem.
Great Need for Broadband Motivates Broadband Pricing Drop
Today 8.ta has reduced its broadband pricing, responding to the need for affordable broadband Internet in the South African market. Effectively, 8.ta has tailored these packages to give users the freedom to choose packages that suit their pockets.
Existing 8.ta Internet subscribers will automatically be migrated to the new price plans, and after their contracts are up for renewal they can also opt to subscribe on a month to month or 12 months contract basis, says Managing Executive of Telkom Mobile, Amith Maharaj.
Once the monthly recurring Post-paid Internet package has been depleted, users will be charged an out-of-bundle rate of R 0.30 per MB while the Once-off Internet subscribers will be charged an out-of bundle rate of R1.00 per MB.
More Value for Internet Subscribers
Post-paid and Once-Off Internet subscribers will also benefit from the following value added services:
Free 8.ta email account with 5GB mailbox giving users access to 25GB online storage and free access to online Microsoft Office suite, which includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Send 5 SMSs daily and receive 50 FREE SMSs to use on that day.
8ta also provides users with a safety net to check their balances on the self-service portal and via USSD and make out of bundle purchase decisions in real-time, using the redirect functionality.
Users will also receive a free call-out and support services with every 3G data modem purchased, which is due to the broadband pricing drop.
