Web Africa - Home Capped ADSL

Which is Right for Me?

Capped v Uncapped

Capped data gives you a set amount of GBs (gigs) per month, determined by the package you choose. Should you use all your gigs within the month, it’s no problem: you can easily top up with more but they come at an extra cost

Uncapped means that you have as much access to the internet as you want - subject to our transparent and fair AUP - Acceptable Use Policy. The convenience of uncapped is that you don't have to worry about running out of gigs or having to top up at an extra cost if you do.

Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further information on our General ADSL Usage Policy .

What ADSL Line Speed do I need?

  • 1Mbps

    Good for general browsing, social media usage, online banking and emailing, 1Mbps is ideal for 1-2 simultaneous users.

  • 2Mbps

    Best for all-round internet use for you and your family. It's a faster connection at a very affordable price and ideal for up to 2-3 simultaneous users.

  • 4Mbps

    Delivering fast internet at a great price for up to 4-5 simultaneous users, 4Mbps is ideal for online videos, gaming, social media and online calls as well as quick downloads. No wonder it's our most popular speed!

  • 10Mbps

    You 'll enjoy a blisteringly quick internet experience with 10Mbps, the perfect deal for media-rich data, viewing online videos in High Definition and super-fast downloads. Ideal for an online-active family, it also helps keep lag to an absolute minimum.

  • 20Mbps

    The second fastest DSL internet connection available in South Africa, at full speed 20Mbps can download a 1GB file in just 8 minutes.

  • 40Mbps

    The fastest DSL internet connection available in South Africa. If speed is important to your business then 40Mbps VDSL is what you need. At full speed it will download a 1GB file in 4 minutes.

What does Mbps mean?

Mbps stands for Megabits per second - the speed that data travels on the internet. In practical terms, ‘speed’ simply means how fast you can browse and download internet content. The more speed you have, the faster your files will download. For example, downloading 1GB will take just over two hours on a 1Mbps connection but only 14 minutes on a 10Mbps connection.

Bundled versus Unbundled

A bundled product solution is one where an ADSL line and a data package are purchased at the same time. In contrast, an unbundled product is one which is purchased alone (ie. An ADSL line without data OR data without an ADSL line). We do not offer customers the option to purchase unbundled products; hence the following scenario is relevant: If a bundled solution is purchased initially and the data portion is subsequently cancelled, then the remaining ADSL line is classified as an unbundled product. The unbundled ADSL line will now attract a higher cost (Extra costs range from R15 – R50 pm depending on your line speed).
