Starting from the 2nd February select Telkom DSL customers will be able to apply for a two-month, free trial of Telkom’s Boltspeed fibre connectivity.

As part of the trial no installation fee will be charged, provided there is already fibre connectivity in your area and no special installation needs to be done.

We were very excited at this news but having to phone Telkom to find out where exactly the areas are that could take advantage of this offer, is not something everybody has time for. So we’ve done the hard work for you.

Below are the areas which qualify for the free trial. Remember that you will still receive your regular speed but you will be using fibre rather than the copper you have been using up until now. With that said, you can also test out Telkom’s 10Mbps and 20Mbps fibre packages while you have that fibre connectivity.

We should also point out that this will only be made available to 11 000 Telkom DSL customers. With so few trials we figured we could save you some time and give you all the suburbs that have a better-than-not chance of getting one of these trials.
