DEALS: MTN true uncapped full speed internet package for R299

MTN has announced that it will be removing the fair use policy for their Uncapped Lite package from the 1st October 2011 - 31 January 2012.

Before the MTN Uncapped Lite package was governed by a fair use policy where after the use of the first 3GB of Internet data at 14.4Mbps you will be restricted to a slower connection of 128kbps. So you still have Internet just a snails pace (approx. 100x slower than a 14.4Mbps speed).

After the 4 month full speed un-throttled data period MTN may decide to reinstate the fair use policy or may decide not to. The unfortunate dilemma is that this offer comes with a 24 month contract period which would normally leave you locked in for 24 months. But with the CPA you are allowed to cancel any contract with 20 days notice without the full penalty of paying for the full term (this is capped at a max of 10%). Keep in mind that if you cancel the contract you will be liable for the repayment of the modem hardware and some either minor cancellation charges. My advice would be to discuss this with MTN before you sign the contract. Then work out the costs vs benefits and decide.

Hopefully MTN will not reinstate the fair use policy and maybe even increase it to 10GB instead of 3GB.
If you do not have a permanent Telkom land line and you want a much faster than 384kbps adsl connection speed then this product is the  perfect deal for you.

True uncapped mobile broadband from MTN at R299
