All about LTE
Everything you need to know about TE and Wireless Broadband
Telkom has 3G, LTE and LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) wireless broadband technology, and your home location will determine the type of broadband coverage/infrastructure currently available to you.
LTE is the latest generation of mobile technology. A step up from 3G technology, LTE offers faster network download and upload speeds.
Shopping, working, gaming and streaming – everything has found its way onto the Net. In the quest to experience the best that the World Wide Web has to offer, wouldn’t it be better to have an option which guarantees that everyone can live their best life while saving more on data costs? It’s possible with Telkom’s LTE offerings.
Our Capped LTE products are available in sizes of 10GB all the way through to 200GB per month. Each product comes with matching additional Night Surfer data, e.g. the 10GB plan comes with 10GB Night Surfer data (available to use between midnight and 7am - the perfect time for downloads).
With the Uncapped product option, you can surf, stream, download and game right through the night without ever worrying about running out of data. As long as you’re within an LTE-enabled area, you’re good to go. Check if your area has coverage by clicking on this link.
Prepaid bundles are ideal if you don’t want a contract, already have an LTE router or you have one of our Capped products and simply need to top up. These bundles are available in sizes of 10GB all the way through to 200GB and you receive matching Anytime AND Night Surfer data.
This is the perfect wireless internet solution for homes and businesses as it comes with a wireless router which is capable of connecting multiple devices simultaneously. Also, being wireless, there are none of the problems (cable damage, cable theft, etc.) often associated with fixed-line connectivity.
Besides the reasonable price of our data, here are some other reasons why you should choose Telkom as your LTE provider:
We are South Africa’s first internet provider with the largest network.
We offer the widest range of home internet solutions (DSL, Fibre and LTE).
Our vast and powerful network processes the largest amount of data in the country.
Our superior network means that we can promise exceptional connectivity and speed.
Our LTE network was designed from the ground up, specifically to provide stable broadband speeds to users using a fixed router in home and office environments.
Before purchasing any of our LTE/LTE-A deals, be sure to check our coverage map to see if the area you're in has coverage for either LTE or LTE-A, or both. Once you’ve done that, go to our homepage to apply or head over to your nearest Telkom store to begin the process.
If you already have an LTE router, you can set up LTE yourself. Simply click on this link for DIY instructions. Once your LTE service is up and running, you'll receive a comprehensive on-boarding pack, including more information on the deal you purchased, an explanation of your first bill, self-service options, information on how to get the most from your service and much more!
When discussing the speed of wireless technologies such as LTE, it is important to note that there are many factors that can affect the speed that you may experience when accessing the internet via wireless LTE. The following factors are all involved when determining the speeds of a wireless LTE connection:
Signal strength/distance from the LTE tower
Number of users simultaneously accessing LTE
The type of hardware/software and router being used
The speed of the actual service being accessed on the internet
Physical obstructions such as buildings, trees or walls between the router and our network.
