Telkom Prepaid Call Charges


Telkom tariffs are generally high, but Telkom's PrepaidFone offering does offer some surprises.

Telkom to Telkom calls using PrepaidFone are more expensive, however when calling to Cellphones and other networks like Neotel, the call charges are the same between PrepaidFone and a regular billed phone.

In addition, monthly line rental for Telkom's prepaid service is R60.40 per month, which is R70.60 less than a billed phone. The more expensive call charges on the prepaid phone is used to offset the reduced line rental, so naturally the more you call the more you pay. If you call a great deal we recommend a billed line with a Telkom Closer package, surprisingly they offer good value for money.

Lastly, if you have a PrepaidFone, you could get Telkom's Waya Waya option, where you pay R130 upfront - this pays for an entire year's line rental. All your prepaid recharge money then goes to call charges only. Installation for a Telkom prepaid line is R270.
