Telkom’s killer uncapped ADSL prices

Telkom’s new uncapped HOMEunlimited packages, which will replace its current Do Uncapped DSL and FTTH offerings, compare well against competing products.

Packages are available in 4Mbps, 10Mbps, 20Mbps, 40Mbps, and 100Mbps options, include line rental, on-network phone calls, and mobile data.

The free calls are valid for any number on Telkom’s fixed line and mobile networks, while the uncapped data is governed by a fair usage policy.

Data downloaded between midnight and 07:00 every day does not count toward the fair usage policy, it added.

Proteas make Test golden duck history

History was made at the end of the third Test between England and South Africa at The Oval in London on Monday.

England off-spinner Moeen Ali claimed a hat-trick to end the match and hand his side a crushing 239-run victory.

The Test was filled with historical significance – this was the 100th Test at The Oval – and saw Ali also create some of his own.

Ali’s was just the 14th England hat-trick at this level and the first in The Oval’s 127-year history as a Test venue.

From a South African perspective, the Proteas made their own bit of their own unwanted “history” by becoming the first team in Test history – in the 2 266th Test [...]
