PRETORIA – TELKOM’S new Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) network has gone live in Parkview and surrounding areas in Johannesburg, delivering peak internet connectivity speeds of up to 150 megabtis per second (Mbps).

Speaking at an event held in Parkview, Managing Director: Telkom Mobile and Consumer, Attila Vitai said Telkom was excited to launch LTE-A in Parkview as part of the company’s new “Futurehood” campaign.

Parkview has been identified as a Telkom “Futurehood” and is the first of over 50 suburbs set to be connected to Telkom’s LTE-A network by March 2015.

“The Futurehood is a place where the possibilities of high speed broadband, meet the specific requirements of the people, homes and businesses across SA.

“Telkom is on a journey to deliver super-fast broadband options on both mobile and fixed lines to cater for the specific needs and requirements of our customers.

“We are gearing ourselves up to be as responsive as possible to what our customers want, be it VDSL, Fibre or LTE-A,” Vitai said.

Vitai said that Telkom’s LTE-A offer was comparable to speeds available over a fibre network and offered a compelling alternative to fixed line solutions for high speed connectivity.

“Being a mobile solution, LTE-A does not require a wire-connection that goes into your home and it is completely ‘Plug and Play’.

“LTE-A can turn your home into a fully connected Wi-Fi hotspot allowing for up to 32 devices to be connected simultaneously.”

The promotional offer unveiled to customers in the Parkview on Friday includes 100GB of data, at peak speeds of up to 150 Mbps, for R1399.00 over a 36 month contract.

“At these speeds our customers will be able to download a 10GB HD movie in less than eight minutes or download a 60MB music album within nine seconds,” Vitai explained.

    Why in Parkview, they are providing a good service for themselves.

    I used to have a prepaid Telkom 3 G package ( Cape Town southern suburbs) The first year it was O.K. in the second year the sevice deteriorated rapidly to a point that they actually agreed to reimburse me the unused balance of the bundle I had bought.
    Why are they not improving the service here?

    All they want to do is stifle the competition in Parkview.
