South African ISPs raise competition concerns about Telkom's fibre pricing

Tuesday 20 April 2021 | 10:24 CET | News
Prominent South African ISPs  have raised concerns that Telkom's fibre pricing may be anti-competitive as it is sold below cost, MyBroadband reported. Telkom Retail is currently offering a 25/25Mbps fibre package on the Openserve network at ZAR 449 per month, which is the cheapest on the market. Telkom is also running a promotion for a 25/5Mbps package in April for ZAR 399 per month on a twelve-month contract.
