Telecom Namibia has officially launched its Speedlink broadband service, which it describes as a ‘game changer’.

The Speedlink product is a direct benefit arising from the recently commissioned West Africa Cable System (WACS) of which Telecom Namibia is the landing agent in Namibia.

Telecom Namibia has upgraded all its existing broadband customers on its ADSL and WiMAX platforms from their current packages to the next higher package – improving their internet access without increasing the price customers are charged.

Telecom Namibia says the new product consists of Speedlink Business and Speedlink Home, both of which deliver faster internet speeds at cheaper monthly rates.

The Speedlink Home range comprises: the entry-level 384k package, priced at N349 per month, and the premium Speedlink Home package, priced at N$949 per month for a 36 months contract, featuring a download speed of up to 2048k. The other packages are the 512k and 1024k priced at N$549 and N$649 per month respectively, for a 36-month contract.
