CAPE TOWN - Telkom has announced a new offer: Uncapped Business Internet with the launch of Unlimited Business Internet and voice plans.

According to their statement, the company is reducing costs by offering businesses uncapped internet data and unlimited online voice call for both local and long distance with an exceptional off-net call rate. 

This includes unlimited calling from Telkom  to Telkom and mobile numbers, with a 50c call rate to "off-net" destinations and a 79c call rate to 12 predefined international fixed line destinations.

The motive behind this action is to aid the sustainability of small and medium businesses as South Africa is currently facing an economic recession.

The company revealed that it has been taking a stand against the high cost of broadband.
