Telkom has just announced that it will be offering a bolt on package giving gamers uncapped gaming for R49 a month.
Erna Korff, Telkom’s Managing Executive for Consumer Marketing, says with the imminent launch of the Xbox One and PS4, both of which are bandwidth intensive devices, this offer will really enable gamers to utilise these devices to their full potential.
“Telkom Internet has been on a determined drive to truly differentiate our broadband offerings to satisfy the customer’s growing appetite for media rich online content,” she says.
The do Gaming Add-On allows customers to apply for uncapped data for a 30 day trial period to provide uncapped access to major gaming platforms and servers including: PlayStation Network; Xbox Live; Battle.net; Steam; Origin and the do Gaming servers. This offer can be used for online gaming; downloading a patch or even downloading a game without the data being deducted from in-bundle data.
Additionally customers can purchase the do Gaming Add-On from 1 November 2013, or after the 30 day trial period, for only R49 per month.
In addition, Telkom has just launched the do Movies Add-On promotion. Telkom Softcap customers will receive uncapped data to the following video service providers, excluding third party applications: DStv Catch Up online; DStv BoxOffice online; Apple TV using iTunes and Samsung Video Hub.
This offer allows customers to rent movies or catch up on missed episodes without the data being deducted from their in-bundle data cap. The promotion will end on 31 March 2014.
“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,” Korff says.
