Telkom Does Good With Offering Uncapped Bandwidth To Gamers On SoftCap Packages
Two words you very seldom hear in a sentence, nevertheless a title: Telkom and good. Fortunately, though, I believe that the company is looking to do better to offer a great service to consumers. Sure, there’s a lot of issues here and there, and fundamentally we’re still running into problems. This bit of news is a start, and while it may be a way to cover up a few problems, who cares, it’s a benefit.
Telkom has announced that its SoftCap uses will receive uncapped data for both video and gaming services. This is an attempt to “maximise the value of the latest bandwidth hungry devices and services.”

“As devices evolve and video streaming gains popularity we know that to be relevant we must deliver on the data demands that will enable this trend. We must embrace the data explosion to ensure that our customers can embrace the latest that technology has to offer,” said Ms Erna Korff, Telkom’s Managing Executive for Consumer Marketing.
Telkom’s do Movies Add-On promotion will be effective from the first of October. SoftCap consumers will benefit from uncapped data to the following service providers: DStv Catch Up online; DStv BoxOffice online; Apple TV using iTunes and Samsung Video Hub. This promotion allows free streaming and watching, where the promotion will end on the 31st of March.
If you’re more of a gaming enthusiast, then this package is for you. Telkom is offering a do Gaming Add-On that allows customers to apply for uncapped data for 30 days. This data will then allow for free data for services including the PlayStation Network; Xbox Live; Battle.net; Steam; Origin and do Gaming servers. This package will allow people to download a game, or patch, without data being reduced from the SoftCap bundle.
The 30 day period mentioned above is more of a trial period, where if gamers want this service for longer, then they can pay R49 per month.
“With the imminent launch of the Xbox One and PS4, which we know will be bandwidth intensive devices, this offer will really enable gamers to utilise these devices to their full potential,” said Korff.
To participate in any of the aforementioned packages, consumers will need to be using a 1GB–or more–Telkom package. It’s, therefore, from the bottom up that Telkom will apply these deals.
