Vodacom slashes DSL prices
Following Vodacom's reduction in data tariffs at the beginning of the month, the service provider has announced a 45% reduction in broadband prices for its Premium Business DSL offerings.
The DSL offerings include shaped, unshaped, capped and uncapped solutions, delivered through Vodacom's Business Services, exclusively for business customers.
“Our Premier DSL services cater for the specific needs of businesses in SA and provide companies, from SOHOs and SMEs to large corporations, with an Internet connection that delivers greater choice, exceptional quality, increased cost efficiencies and an excellent user experience,” says managing executive for commercial development Chris Ross.
According to Ross, Vodacom procures bandwidth from a variety of cable systems, including SAFE, SAT3, Seacom and Eassy.
“We are not dependent on any one system, and so if one fails there is a transparent switch to another source, with the addition of an optional 3G failover service available on our CPE routers.”
Ross adds there are several packages and service bundles available, including hardware such as routers, modems and VOIP devices. Customers can upgrade or renew contracts to take advantage of the new pricing.
“We are committed to meeting the market needs of our business customers, and have heard what they want from a services supplier - reliability, availability, robustness and quality at a reasonable cost.
“Our new pricing structure, together with our existing infrastructure, delivers this and gives them the flexibility and power to choose the solution that best meets their needs,” Ross concludes.
