Knowledge Base Updates
Thursday, 19 April, 2012 at 09:42 - Announcements
Our Support Team are constantly working on new and better ways to improve our service to clients. To achieve this, we look at ways that clients can improve their knowledge (and control) of their products, so that they can avoid lengthy support calls and reduce the resolution time for their ADSL and Hosting problems.
Instead of deciding what information our clients needed to have, we asked what issues are our clients experiencing and what are the questions that they’re asking. We conducted a comprehensive survey with our team of support consultants to determine where clients were having problems that required them to call for support. We also put together some useful tips and guidelines which would help clients resolve their issues on their own, or at the very least arm them with information which would assist our consultants to quickly resolve the problem.
We have included as much information as possible to help any client (beginner or advanced) to get to the bottom of the problem they are experiencing. We hope you’ll give our solutions a try and let us know if they’ve been helpful.
ADSL Packages Revised and Prices Slashed
Wednesday, 18 April, 2012 at 13:56 - Product News
We have made major changes to our ADSL packages. All Capped ADSL products will receive up to double their current data allocation!
A Bronze client who pays R29pm for 1GB will now receive 2GB for the same amount. A Platinum product user with a 100GB account for R950pm will now get 120GB of data without paying a single cent more - bringing prices down to below R8 per GB for pure, unshaped, internet goodness!
Furthermore, AfriGamer clients that pay R299pm for 20GB will now have 35GB of regular data to use in addition to their zero-rated gaming bandwidth.
This is arguably the biggest change to our ADSL Packages since we revolutionised the market back in 2009 by pioneering R29 per GB - a time when the industry norm was around 3 times higher.
The ADSL market has recently seen data prices being cut by a number of ISPs, due to the reduction in IP Connect costs. Surveying the ADSL landscape has allowed us to deliver a set of products at rates that will no doubt secure our spot as an industry leader.
The revised packages are available right now on our website and will come into effect for all existing clients on Capped ADSL products on the first of May - including AfriGamer and ADSL + WiFi Roaming clients.
We will also be re-evaluating both our Regular and Business Uncapped packages. Though no official figures are available, we will at minimum match competitor rates.
