A bit about Telkom landlines

Landlines have taken something of a backbench as the whole world moves to mobile. Fortunately, the expected bloodbath has turned out to be only a mirage. Landline use is still growing in South Africa and elsewhere. This mainly has to do with the fact that it’s cheaper to make a call to and from a landline.

Landlines are also reliable. Copper has been around for a bit and it is tried and tested. And if you are looking for internet, you can always have ADSL, which offers more than decent speeds.
