Telkom working to contain the spread of COVID-19

Telkom is supporting the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 by ensuring greater access to information for South Africans.

Telkom has zero rated official Coronavirus information sites on its network. The National Institute for Communicable Diseases and SA Government websites are all accessible to the Telkom subscriber base for free. This is in addition to the information being distributed to subscribers.

“We believe that the pandemic can be overcome if we work together and ensure that South Africans are empowered with access to accurate information about the virus,” said Mooketsi Mocumi, Telkom spokesperson.

In addition, Telkom’s zero rating of educational facility websites will enable learning and teaching to continue as the country works to contain the spread of the virus, he concluded.

Telkom has zero-rated educational URLs which include Institutions of higher learning and TVET Colleges to help the youth access education. See below list.
