Cheapest ADSL data prices ever in South Africa

By 21st October 2015October 18th, 2016No Comments

Some of the main service providers such as Openweb, Afrihost and Vox Telecom have reduced their capped ADSL prices to below R4 per GB, which is the lowest level ever seen in South Africa.

When ADSL was first launched in 2002, Telkom dominated the market and therefore could charge a lot for a service everyone wanted. We were used to paying between R50 and R70 for a gigabyte of ADSL data.

When Afrihost started offering R29 per GB in 2009, this all began to change. MWEB got on board by offering their own affordable uncapped ADSL products, which in turn challenged other ISPs to do the same. This resulted in numerous price cuts over the next three and a half years, and explains today’s prices in a nutshell.
