Vodacom Extends Data Price Reductions to their Premium Business DSL services
Up to 45% price reduction to fixed DSL services
Includes shaped and unshaped, capped and uncapped solutions
Premium Business Services provide quality, robust connectivity
3G failover option for high availability
Blended services provide better reliability
Further to the recent announcement on reductions in data pricing, Vodacom's Business Services has announced a significant reduction in broadband prices for its Premium Business DSL offerings.
"Our premier DSL services cater for the specific needs of businesses in South Africa and provide companies, from SoHos and SMMEs to large corporations, with an Internet connection that delivers greater choice, exceptional quality, increased cost efficiencies and an excellent user experience," says Chris Ross, Managing Executive: Commercial Development.
Delivered through Vodacom's Business Services, and exclusively for business customers, DSL broadband services are delivered over fixed lines to business users almost anywhere in the country. Additional and optional 3G failover brings even higher reliability to users.
Ross explains that Vodacom procures bandwidth from a variety of cable systems, including SAFE, SAT3, SEACOM and EASSY, and uses technology that blends these to create complete reliability. "We are not dependent on any one system and so if one fails there is a transparent switch to another source. With the addition of an optional 3G failover service, available on our CPE routers, our users enjoy reliable connectivity - one of the most important benefits for our users."
In addition, because Vodacom provides lower contention rates, this results in the delivery of a higher quality service to their business customers.
There are several packages and service bundles available, including hardware such as routers, modems and VoIP devices. Existing customers are welcome to either upgrade or renew contracts to take advantage of the new pricing, says Ross.
"We are committed to meeting the market needs of our business customers, and have heard what they want from a services supplier - reliability, availability, robustness and quality at a reasonable cost. Our new pricing structure, together with our existing infrastructure delivers this and gives them the flexibility and power to choose the solution that best meets their needs," Ross concludes.

Vodacom notice - Phishing
Vodacom has recently been made aware of some customers receiving fraudulent emails claiming to be from Vodacom and asking for updated contact information. The mails may even look authentic and contain the Vodacom logo and corporate colours.
Note: Vodacom won't ever ask for personal information over email.
These are scams commonly known as 'phishing' and all Vodacom customers should take note of the following before responding to an email from a site asking for personal information.
- Check that the email address and the sender name match.
- Hover over (but do not click) any links to check if the address matches the link that was typed in the message.
- Make sure that the email address or phone number listed in the email is the same as the one that should be on that company's records.
- Does the message start with a generic greeting, like "Dear customer." Most legitimate companies will include the recipient's name in their messages
If you suspect a phishing mail, contact our customer care by dialing 111 from your Vodacom handset. Alternatively, send us an email by completing the Scams & Hoax form.
