South African ISP, MWEB announced today that it will be slashing its 10Mbps Uncapped Shaped ADSL pricing by a staggering R1000 per month. This means that the high end user; gamer, the avid downloader and small businesses will be able to experience this product for a fraction of its original pricing. As an addition to MWEB’s already robust uncapped ADSL range, including MWEB 1Mbps Uncapped ADSL for just R199 per month, the new 10Mpbs product positions MWEB as the go-to ISP for entry level, as well as top-end uncapped ADSL.
Derek Hershaw, CEO of MWEB ISP explains, “Locally, 10Mbps Uncapped ADSL is a premium product and by cutting the price of our offering by 50% we’re making it possible for more South Africans to move up the broadband value chain to top speed, uncapped Internet. Although most of our competitors have some form of throttling on their 10Mbps products, MWEB does not throttle, which means we can deliver the best possible Internet experience to subscribers on our network. At R999 per month, 10Mbps Uncapped Unthrottled ADSL gives South African Internet users exceptional value for money.”
MWEB’s 10Mbps Uncapped product is ideal for, but not limited to, small office networks, downloading of large files and rich media, movies, online gaming, and VoIP calling. With the staggering price cut of the package, high-end internet users on MWEB’s 4Mbps products can now upgrade to a 10Mbps connection for R400 extra per month.
Furthermore, as part of MWEB’s focus to look for ways to make faster broadband more affordable, MWEB has announced that its 1Mbps customers are now able to upgrade their Uncapped ADSL data package to 2Mbps, thereby doubling their Internet speeds for just R170 more per month. This is in-light of Telkom migrating all 1Mbps ADSL lines to 2Mbps lines during August and September 2012.
“At R369 per month, our 2Mbps Uncapped ADSL data package is excellent value. As with all MWEB Uncapped ADSL offerings, the 2Mbps product is unthrottled which means our customers can utilise their uncapped connection without being slowed down by policies like rolling windows, or time-based throttling.”
By MWEB introducing its new 2Mbps package and cutting the 10Mbps price, the ISP’s product set is even more robust amongst its competitors, and meets the needs of all South African users. MWEB 1Mbps, 2Mbps, 4Mbps and 10Mbps Uncapped data customers who bring their ADSL lines across to MWEB will also benefit from cheaper ADSL line rental.
