Telkom services are famously affordable. In fact, Telkom data bundle prices are the most affordable in South Africa. This is one reason why they are one of the most popular network providers; the largest in the country by subscriber base. They have simply adapted: Most people use a data connection for everything because data is cheaper than voice, and also because it is more appealing to use, due to the rise of Social Media.
By making their internet data connections cheap, Telkom has simply cornered the markets. Many subscribers are constantly asking for information on how to improve their user experience. In response to that, in this article, I listed all Telkom Data bundles promotions, their prices, and other things you need to know.
