ADSL

KABtech offers an ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) broadband solution, as well as capped or uncapped data packages. This is currently the most popular fast home Internet technology used in South Africa and is generally cheaper than wireless and fibre-based services.

As a second-tier home broadband provider we can order the Telkom line on your behalf and even take care of the billing aspect. This means you don’t have to manage or contact Telkom throughout the process all; our expert staff can take care of everything for you. If you’re a business owner who is looking for seamless data communication between users or even branches, then KABtech can also provide an ADSL solution tailored to your usage requirements.

In order to purchase this type of broadband, you will need an appropriate router/modem, an ADSL-capable phone line, as well as an account for data. Many people are often surprised when they find out they need to pay for the line rental and also commission an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Essentially it works like the below:

  • There is usually a setup fee with Telkom (which we can take care of on your behalf as part of our service costs).
  • You will need to purchase the router/modem that facilitates this technology.
  • There is a monthly line rental charge that you will need to be aware of.
  • You will also need a monthly ISP subscription in order to get your data package.

When it comes to the speed that you can expect, this can also vary depending on the type of service you purchase. The slowest speed is 384kbps, while the fastest can now range up to 10mbps for those living in particular urban centres with access to high-speed lines. Try to keep in mind that the faster your line the more data you will naturally use. You will need to have a data package that keeps this relatively cost-efficient.
