Telecom Namibia announced the launch of its first ever Speedlink broadband packages for residential, small office/home (SOHO) and small enterprises, which provides a thrilling plug-and-play Internet browsing experience with high speed broadband connectivity feature.

This broadband promotion, which starts tomorrow and ends 20 June 2014, is branded ‘Speedlink Lite’. The new packages allow customers to connect effortlessly to Internet with different devices such as tablets, smartphone and laptops.

Speedlink Lite is made up of Speedlink Data (home and business) and Speedlink Data Professional with static IP address – both designed for customers who want seamless data-only usage.

peedlink Data has a bandwidth speed of minimum 512kbps and maximum of 10 Mbps, while Speedlink Data Professional has speeds from 1Mbps up to 10 Mbps. Customers can choose any of the unlimited internet plans accordingly, as per their requirement.

The Speedlink Lite packages have eight distinct data-only offerings with unlimited usage, giving customer more choice. Prices start from N$245 a month for a 512k package up to N$4,048 for a 10 Mbps package for a 36-month contract.

“The new price points for all packages make data affordable for everyone to use to their desired content. Our customers can conveniently stay connected and download content throughout the day without feeling a strain on their pockets. We are confident that, with our reliable Internet connectivity across the country and now these affordable plans, we are greatly improving the value proposition to all of our customers,” said Isak Ouseb, Senior Manager for Product Management.

For the new Speedlink Lite packages the telecommunication giant will not provide customer premises equipment (CPE), meaning that customers will have the option to purchase own modem separately on cash or instalment.

“Customer will be provided with data/internet service only without any value added service,” added Ouseb. He said the new plans are based on customer demand for more data and faster speeds.

Telecom Namibia offers a variety of Wi-Fi enabled CPEs with rich features allowing customers to connect to the Internet seamlessly with smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Ouseb said that people in the country are increasingly consuming the internet using their smartphone devices or tablets for surfing the web and staying in touch with family, friends or colleagues through emails, messengers or social networking sites.

“Our new Speedlink Lite packages will target these specific requirements and continue to deliver great value to customers,” he said.

“Activity such as watching videos on YouTube, exchanging files via Whatsapp or using certain apps all consume high amounts of data meaning customers require packages that can accommodate their data usage,” he added. “Telecom Namibia has a responsibility to meet the needs of its customers and we want their experience to be as enjoyable as possible. These packages are some of the most competitive in the market and ensure customers enjoy optimal data usage and peace of mind.” An Installation fee of N$222 is payable in town and N$333 outside town.
