Not so long ago, a TV hero would tell his talking sportscar to Turbo past, over or through obstacles. Even though his car was already incredibly fast, it sometimes needed that extra boost to give it an edge. Clearly our team have been watching too much TV! With our latest inspired idea, we are redefining how Uncapped ADSL works - by introducing Turbocharge!
Turbocharge adds a new dimension of speed and convenience to our Uncapped product, which already offers excellent value for money. As a semi-shaped product, the network automatically gives highest priority to real time services - which always run at full speeds, while downloads are sometimes shaped to provide the best overall experience to all users on our network.
Now, as a value added service, Uncapped users can activate Turbocharge, which will completely unshape their Uncapped connection for 60 minutes at a time. During this time all traffic shaping protocols are removed from their profile, allowing them full unshaped use of their ADSL connection for that Turbocharged session. Once the session expires, their ADSL will return to our normal Uncapped management policy. In simple terms, if you want that download now, TurboCharge to make sure you get it at the fastest speeds possible.
The great news for our clients is that every single client will be granted 300 minutes (or 5 sessions) automatically each month. Clients will also be able to top up additional Turbocharge sessions for just R29 - applicable minutes will depend on the client's package. The following table illustrates how much R29 will purchase on each tier:
|10Mbps Consumer Uncapped||60 minutes||R29 per increment|
|4Mbps Consumer Uncapped||120 minutes||R29 per increment|
|2Mbps Consumer Uncapped||240 minutes||R29 per increment|
|1Mbps Consumer Uncapped||480 minutes||R29 per increment|
Unused sessions will expire at the end of the month (similar to data topups) and a new allocation of 300 minutes will be loaded on the first of every month. We aim to continue to raise the bar for ISP services by anticipating client's needs and developing tools to give them more out of our products. Turbocharge is yet another awesome gadget available to our clients in their ClientZone arsenal.
