Cost of 2 to 4 Mbps

Someone from Telkom phoned me about upgrading from 2 to 4 Mbps, since I dont have a problem with 2 Mbps, I asked what it was going to cost, and I was told the difference would be about R36 per month, so I said OK, go ahead. However when I checked the rates on Telkom's web site, the price is more like R144 extra, so I phoned the sales people at Telkom and asked them to cancel the upgrade. They said there was no order for that upgrade, but they would make a note that it was to be cancelled if it came through. I posted this on the Telkom Facebook page, and got a message that someone from Telkom would contact me, but nothing has happened so far. As long as this order gets cancelled that is OK, but I will not be amused if I get billed an extra R144 at month end.

Re: Cost of 2 to 4 Mbps

Thank you for the clarification.

As I said in the original post, I have posted it on Facebook, and I have spoken to Naleda (spelling?) on 10213 and both have told me it would be cancelled. The Facebook people said someone from Telkom would contact me but nothing so far. I just mentioned it here in case someone else had the same problem with the telephone quote not matching the actual cost
