Cheapest ADSL deals in South Africa May 2014

Axxess announced on 26 May 2014 that it is doubling the data allowance of its capped ADSL subscribers free of charge.

“We’re giving our Capped DSL clients twice as many Gigs as they bargained for, by literally doubling their data at no extra cost during the Double Your Gigs promotion,” Axxess told subscribers.

With this promotion Axxess reduced the price of ADSL data for larger bundles to less than R2 per GB.

This raises the question of how Axxess’ new capped ADSL prices compare with competing products in the market. The following table answers that question.

It should be noted that Web Africa doubles subscribers’ caps by offering after hours data, which is not shown in the table (only any-time data is shown).
