You can get month to month if you have your own router. If they supply you have to pay back with a contract. I have been with them for 7 years as I do not have wireless in my area. However, Telkom is moving away from copper and reducing technicians. Moving over to LTE.Naked adsl... wonder if I can get it on month to month?!
This isn't Naked DSL I think, this is their Rona promo which is reduced rate for 6 months.Seems like a good option for people that can't get fibre.

Telkom cuts uncapped ADSL prices – Starting at R199
There's a link in the article which isThis isn't Naked DSL I think, this is their Rona promo which is reduced rate for 6 months.
I'm still waiting on an ISP to show real naked DSL that isn't stupidly priced after the Rona promo.
The price difference is R100 and this is from the FAQs:Think so too. If you look at the price difference of R200 between the lite and premium, which is literally the price of landline rental.
Do you have a link? Then I have the wording and places on their site where it is so I can speak to someone who actually knows what's up.The price difference is R100 and this is from the FAQs:
Can I migrate from the traditional DSL copper line to the Pure Connect DSL offering? • To the DSL Unlimited Home Premium bundles, yes (Voice and Internet). • To the DSL Unlimited Home Lite, Yes (Only Internet, not voice)

Hmm I can only find a "Unlimited Home Lite" which is listed as fibre.
Thank you. I guess the info hasn't filtered down to the call centers yet... But they also don't call it "Naked ADSL".
I'm on month to month at the moment... so hopefully I can make some plan. On their website you can click "upgrade" but they say "nope"? sigh....Reality. If you have an existing Telkom contract, You are screwed. Only available to new contracts. Existing customers have no option to go on the naked deals. Best I can get is a home premium upgrade. FmL
Think the product is called pure connect they should have it on their system as it was only launched last FridayI spent 10 mins on the line to a telkom agent... I asked him if they have Naked ADSL yet.
He sounded confused so I explained
"Naked ADSL is where you don't have the voice portion"
He then went on to explain that ADSL runs on copper and therefore you need a voice line.
So I said "sure, in the past you needed a voice line at like R200pm then you added the ADSL line on top of that and on top of that you added the ISP portion... BUT I've seen articles saying that you should be able to get it without the voice portion... is this an option yet?"
He then goes on to explain that you can get it with bundled minutes or without bundled minutes.
So I ask simply "can I get it without the voice portion?"
He explains again "you have 2 options ...."
Maybe one day... but not yet I guess.
The one agent I spoke to told me I would still get the promo price on month to month...but then the agents can't agree on what is true and what isn't.I've been looking at this as well, but I was told by a sales rep from Telkom that month-to-month means no promo price, no router and you foot the bill for installation costs. Although the installation costs were not broken down, so what exactly does the installation all entail? I got a quote from them that's its about R1600 in total. Just asking so I know what I'm getting myself into.
