  1. Turn the WiFi of your device on.
  2. Once you have done that, you will need to search for any WiFi networks that are available to you nearby.
  3. After that, you will click on “1 Telkom Connect” once your device has found a Telkom Wi-Fi Hotspot.
  4. You will need to change the EAP method to be able to use EAP-SIM or SIM on your device.
  5. Once you settle that, you click on connect, and you will then be able to use any Telkom’s Wi-Fi Hotspot within your range.

Telkom Uncapped ADSL promotion

There are new offers for subscribers who need high-speed internet service. According to the information published on their official website, just by signing up for a 10Mbps Fibre/DSL deal in this new year, customers will be able to enjoy free installations as well as a one-month free internet subscription. Apart from that, there would be unlimited calls alongside a free LIT_ Android TV Box, a D-Link DSL-G2562DG dual band GW, and a WiFi range extender available for grab. To enjoy this bountiful offer, a customer is expected to pay a token of R807 per month.

Telkom's Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is a technology that helps to transmit digital information at a high bandwidth on telephone lines to homes and businesses. With this ADSL, customers can enjoy relatively fast internet speed while on the go. By implication, whether you are using the internet to check your statuses on the social media platforms or you are transferring big files or streaming media content, you have nothing to worry about concerning the speed rate.

However, in places where Fibre service is not yet available, subscribers will also enjoy the standard DSL (copper) cable technology. And interestingly, new subscribers will not have to worry about high installation costs as they will automatically enjoy free installations.

Depending on your need or the purpose for which you need an internet connection, any of the juicy Telkom internet packages discussed so far will serve you so well without any reasons to regret in the process. Whether as an individual or a group, feel free to subscribe for any of the packages that meet your needs.
