Cape Town - @lantic, the consumer internet service provider
within the Vox Telecom Group, has announced its second significant data price
cut for 2012.
In a media release on Friday, @lantic's Dederick Venter
said: "This is our way of compensating for the recent increases in Telkom
"Telkom is still the monopoly supplier of ADSL lines so
we can't do anything about that, but we can cut our data costs. South Africans
are still paying far too much for internet connectivity and we will continue to
do everything in our power to bring prices down."
A 1Mb line with uncapped data will now cost @lantic
customers R351 a month, down from the previous R589. For those who already have
a line and only need uncapped data, the price has dropped from R299 to R199 a
Business users can score as the price of the uncapped 1Mb
ADSL offering has more than halved, from R1 779 to R877 a month. The 4Mb and
10Mb packages also offer big price cuts.
There's also good news for consumers needing unshaped ADSL
that will allow them to browse the web, play online games, download stock
prices and use Skype all at the same speed.
An unshaped package of 10Gb per month has dropped from R560
to R314 per month, with the top 100GB package coming down from R3 100 to R2 594
