The price war for DSL customers in South Africa is getting very healthy at the moment, and barely a day goes by without news someone or other dropping their charges. Today’s drop is good news for Web Africa customers* who want superfast broadband: the firm just dropped its charges for 20 and 40Mbps VDSL, cheekily making it the cheapest around by just R10 a month.
From yesterday, the firm is now charging R425 for a 20Mbps line and R525 for 40Mbps. That compares to Afrihost and Axxess – the previous holders of the title – both of whom charge R425 and R535.
In terms of data, Afrihost wins overall as it only charges you an extra R399 for 200GB a month under its current promotion (about what you need for, say, Netflix), while Web Africa charges R599 but throws in another 400GB of night time downloads too.
