Unlimited calls with Telkom’s Unlimited Lite

Telkom has recently launched Unlimited Lite, further indicating its commitment to providing customers with the best mobile packages. Both consumers and businesses reliant on voice calls will welcome Unlimited Lite which offers unlimited calling on Telkom’s mobile and fixed line numbers.
“Unlimited Lite is a lighter version of the very popular Completely Unlimited plan already available from Telkom. In a recent comparison, the Company’s unlimited plans were rated as offering the best value. Telkom was also recently rated by Tarifica as offering the best contract mobile deals.
Ms Megan Nicholas, Managing Executive for Telkom Business’ mobile solutions says, “Unlimited Lite will be offered to customers that focus on voice communication and it will give them a taste of the unlimited experience at a very affordable price.”
Unlimited Lite packages are available from R599 on a selection of smartphones. Benefits include: unlimited calls on Telkom’s mobile network, unlimited calls to both fixed line operators, free WiFi data at more than 3000 Telkom mobile hotspots and also 800 minutes to call to other local networks. It offers benefits normally associated with premium priced unlimited offerings. Unlimited Lite is available to all customers who will also have the option to add on optional data and SMS bundles if and when required. 
"This is a key tool especially for small businesses that compete with larger enterprises while having to closely manage operational costs. Our Unlimited Lite package provides exceptional value and facilitates more affordable calls across mobile and fixed lines," concluded Nicholas.
This package is an example of Telkom's continued commitment to providing solutions that enable customers to run always on, successful, efficient and profitable operations.
