BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS

 Solution Type  Description  

 

Fixed broadband or ADSL is an always-on internet connection that has become the standard for reliable broadband connectivity. ADSL is the most cost-effective and reliable high speed internet access for home and business users, and is the first choice for those who are looking for the ideal broadband solution.

ADSL operates over a telephone or fax line and does not need to "dial out" as with dialup access - for this reason you can still make or receive telephone calls / faxes while online. A set monthly ADSL line rental fee is charged by Telkom, as well as an ADSL Internet Access account (by GNS) - with a predetermined limit (or cap) depending on how much data you download / upload. Costs exclude: the installation of an ADSL line by Telkom and the monthly rental thereof.
