Telkom LTE FAQs

LTE Packages

What is LTE-A (LTE-Advanced)?

LTE-Advanced also known as 4G is the next evolution from LTE technology and Telkom was the first to commercially launch this technology in South Africa. LTE-Advanced supports a lower latency in comparison to LTE technology. This is important in supporting services that require real-time online capability like online gaming and high Quality of Service.

What is the difference between LTE vs Fibre?

LTE and Fibre technology both fall into the next-generation basket of internet technologies. LTE is delivered over a dedicated, licensed wireless spectrum using advanced technologies, while Fibre is delivered over a physical fibre optic cable. Both technologies are capable of delivering faster internet speeds with lower latencies and higher dependability than traditional technologies.

What speeds can I expect from Telkom's LTE-Advanced network?

Telkom's LTE-Advance network supports download speeds of up to 150Mbps and upload speeds of up to 25Mbps.

What happens if I relocate?

Telkom LTE is designed to be a fixed-wireless service that remains at a single location, however should you take it with you when you travel or move, it will work just by plugging it in depending on whether you are still in a LTE, 3G or LTE-Advanced coverage zone (should you have an LTE –advanced router/package).

Signing Up

Does RICA apply?

RICA compliance rules will apply.

What supporting documents are required if I sign up in my personal (consumer) capacity?

1. Signed Application Form
2. Copy of ID 

3. Copy of latest Telkom bill (only required for Telkom customers)

What supporting documents are required if I sign up in business capacity?

1. Signed Application Form
2. Company Registration Document

3. Copy of Directors' ID

4. Copy of latest Telkom Bill 

5. Proof of Directors' Address

6. Proof of banking (1 month bank statement, cancelled cheque or bank confirmation letter) 

How do I check my Telkom LTE coverage?

A sales agent will be able to assist you with checking if your address is in LTE coverage. Fill in the form on the link below and we will check your Telkom LTE coverage:  www.coveragecheck.co.za/telkomlte

Can I add the LTE service to my existing Telkom account?

If you have a Telkom Mobile account then yes. If you have a Telkom Fixed Line account (i.e. landline or ADSL service) then no, as Fixed Line and Mobile are different divisions at Telkom.

How long does the process take once I submit my application form?

Consumer applications take +/- 3 - 5 working days. Business applications take +/- 3 - 5 working days, so please ensure you get your paperwork in with the correct supporting documentation early.

Do I need a Telkom line in order to get the LTE service?

No fixed line is needed at all. LTE is a completely wireless technology.

Installation & Delivery

How long does it take for my SIM to be activated once the courier delivers?

+/- 24-48 hours, once your hardware arrives your SIM card is not yet active. You need to sign the courier waybill and only after the courier gets back to the depot and scans in the waybill and sends it to the Telkom Mobile back office, will Telkom activate the SIM. 

Where will my LTE SIM and device be delivered to?

The hardware will be sent directly to the delivery address specified on the application form. In most cases this will be the client's premises address, so you can expect a delivery from Telkom directly unless you have arranged our agents to install/deliver.

What precautions should I take when setting up my LTE Wi-Fi router?

Users should reset their login username and password on the router, as well as the password for the Wi-Fi connection. For assistance with this or advanced security, please call the Telkom support desk on 081180.

What do I need to have with me when the courier arrives?

The person receiving the LTE package needs to be the same person who has signed for the deal on the application form and they will need to present a copy of their ID to the courier.

Rica compliance rules will apply.


When is the night surfer data available?

Night surfer data is available between 12am-7am daily. Including weekends.

Changing My Package

Can I change my LTE package?

Yes you can change your package but the ability to upgrade or downgrade your Telkom LTE package depends on how many months you are in to your contract or commitment period:

2) If you are 4 - 21 months into your contract period, you are allowed to change your package. Telkom refers to this as a package migration and we charge an administration fee and a penalty fee to perform the migration which is calculated at the time of the package migration request.

3) If you are in the 22nd month or more of your contract period, you are allowed to change your package. Telkom refers to this as a package renewal and no administration or penalty fees will be charged.
