Afrihost “Bundles Up” for winter with Affordable Broadband
Wednesday, 06 June, 2012 at 11:00 - Announcements
We are now offering the most affordable ADSL bundles in South Africa!
A well known company’s CEO recently said “price is not a strategy in itself. It’s a killer for everyone” - Implying that pushing prices down hurts the market, and ultimately the consumer. We reject this notion, and proved this in the past by introducing R29 per GB pricing - which eventually made broadband more affordable and accessible to the average South African.
We recognize that the barrier facing many consumers is not so much the cost of bandwidth itself, but the total cost of a broadband solution. By introducing the most affordable ADSL bundles South Africa has ever seen, we are launching an aggressive attack against the high cost of fixed bandwidth installations.
How are these amazing prices possible? Simple - we have allocated a chunk of our marketing budget to subsidise the bundles. As always, we will ensure that existing clients are looked after first and foremost. Any existing client with an ADSL line and Uncapped product can combine their current products and take up a bundle solution.
Most notably, our 10Mbps bundle solution comes in at a jaw-dropping R897pm – which is even less than we (or anyone else) is currently charging for a standalone 10Mbps Uncapped ADSL Data package.
We will monitor sign-ups and the continued viability of the pricing, and may at some point in the future adjust pricing for new signups. However any client, new or existing, who moves to the new Bundles will retain the pricing they signed up for initially.
