Telkom Fibre Uncapped Fair Usage Policy

Our Fibre was installed two days ago.  I would just like to find out if there is a Fair Usage Policy for the 10mb uncapped Fibre promo?

I think unless you're a business paying big bucks, then every Telkom plan is subjected to the ridiculous FUP. From what I've read, it's between 200-300GB/month since it depends on the total amount used by your area which dictates if you get throttled.

"uncapped capped" is how they should promote it lol

I am thinking of going uncapped and no one is able to give me a definate answer to how much I can use before throttling takes affect, I am on a 10Mbps line

They can't give you an answer because it depends on the total data used by your neighbours. However figure between 200GB to 300GB/month before they put you on their capped uncapped account

Re: Telkom Fibre Uncapped Fair Usage Policy

I got the following information from a Telkom shop.

 

Uncapped fibre FUPs:

4Mb - 360GB

10Mb - 900GB

20Mb - 1800GB

40MB - 3600GB

100MB - 6000GB

 

When you hit the limit you will be throttled to 128kb

I don't think that you get that much before they hit the brakes.

 

From what I've read it starts getting throttled at a percentage of this amount. 

 

eg 50% of this amount and your speed drops to such & such

Re: Telkom Fibre Uncapped Fair Usage Policy

If Telkom has the bandwith to offer those amounts on Fibre, Why then are ADSL users nailed so heavily on "Uncapped"
