ADSL price war triggered


Johannesburg - Internet service provider company iBurst has launched SA's fastest ADSL service at 20Mbps - but the service will only be available to multi-tenant communities, such as gated communities, shopping centres and office parks.

iBurst CEO Jannie van Zyl said the service would offer impressive speed improvements, the ability to do business with a last-mile provider other than Telkom and use of existing ADSL modems and routers.

Its 20 Mbps ADSL2+ solution will cost about R400 per month and the company will also offer 5Mbps, 10Mbps and 15Mbps services at lower rates.

Subscribers will also have to purchase ADSL2+ data bundles to suit their needs, but Van Zyl points out the advantage of not being forced to purchase an additional analogue voice line rental.

"We are currently improving uplink speeds on the ADSL2+ product to 3Mbps, and have plans to launch a 40Mbps service with a 6Mbps uplink speed that will link two ADSL2+ connections," said Van Zyl.
