    So if Axxess or Afrihost charge R150.00 for a 2mbps service (example). Doesn't that entail the speed of the line as well as DATA?

    You will get 3 bills.

    1. Telkom line rental R199 - just to have a line
    2. Data cost - that is where you select 2mb, 4mb.... so lets say R165 as previously mentioned.
    3. data cap - depending on how much you want this can be from R40 up

  3. Saying Thanks:

    2 bills if you take a bundle offer

    Afrihost still sends 2 bills, even with the bundle they split it on invoicing.

    Like everyone said the line and data would usually be seperate but you can bundle them if you willing to let the ISP take over control of your ADSL from Telkom.

    For example, you can get Axxess 2Mbps with Uncapped data for R215 which when combined with the mandatory R200 for the line rental will bring you very close to your initial R400 budget.

    Just got a quote from webafrica for R199.00 Landline + R165.00 ADSL 2Mps Line rental + R99.00 100GB Capped

    Total: R464.00 Not bad. Still getting more quotes

    They say with Capped your line speed stays the same but with uncapped your speed drops

    It would be the exact same amount at Axxess, Afrihost & Vox as well

    So it would come down to your own preference, personally I would recommend Vox because of the 6-month data rollover
