IS, Incredible Connection offer consumer broadband

Internet Solutions (IS) and Incredible Connection have partnered to offer consumers and small businesses end-to-end DSL solutions, available via sign-up in-store or from the www.connection.co.za Web site.

Known as Connection DSL powered by IS Ignite, the offering enables Incredible Connection customers to walk into a store, buy a router, sign up for uncapped Internet, and walk out connected. Throughout the process, customers are assisted and advised by expert consultants.

"The adoption of DSL in South Africa is growing rapidly as Telkom continues to drop pricing and upgrade existing infrastructure," comments Herman Jansen Van Rensburg, GM of IS Ignite. "The continued growth of mobile and smart devices in the home, combined with the cost and unpredictable nature of mobile data, as well as the rise in popularity of online and connected gaming, are key drivers of DSL adoption. Consumers are looking for a high-speed, low-cost means to remain connected."

Jansen Van Rensburg also explains that the partnership is of strategic importance as it significantly expands the company's distribution network into the retail space. "With over 70 Incredible Connection stores nationwide, we have been able to reach more clients, and make the service more accessible to the public."

Two uncapped product variants are available initially – one designed for home use, while the other targets small businesses. There are also different line speeds available, with 1, 2, 4 and 10Mbps options.

"The home offering poses aggressive market pricing, while the business product includes a monthly allocation of 300MB of WiFi data from AlwaysOn to enable greater mobility."

The solution is available on a month-to-month basis, so customers are not obliged to enter into a long-term contract. "Additionally, we are offering a limited-numbers launch promotion, where the first 1 000 sign-ups receive special pricing of R99 per month, which will make this the most affordable 2Mbps DSL offering in the country," says Jansen Van Rensburg.

The Connection DSL Home Uncapped package offers four line speed options, which are bundled with DSL, mail and fax-to-email.

1Mbps: R164
2Mbps: R194 (or R99 for the first 1 000 customers)
4Mbps: R260
10Mbps: R499

The Connection DSL Business Uncapped package includes DSL, mail, fax-to-email and WiFi connectivity through all AlwaysOn hotspots.

1Mbps: R254
2Mbps: R354
4Mbps: R594
10Mbps: R894
