We are pleased to announce that the migration to the new Telkom Commercial Platform is completed. A few final replacement sims are being couriered to clients. – Reboot and check APN=telkominternet please – Report any problems to firstname.lastname@example.org
14/15 April 2017
MIGRATION 93% COMPLETED
Some technical errors and late adopters cause a slight delay in full completion.
Technical Errors: -> A few sims failed to register and is still active but have no data associated.
The Fix: -> 153 Mobile will deactivate these sims and issue brand new sims as a replacement.
How can this process be sped up?: -> Clients may obtain a Pay as you Go sim from a local shop and send a photo of the front and back of the si to email@example.com ( Sims must Not be RICA’d !!!! )-
The alternative is for us to issue the sim and courier it to you. Please communicate ASAP with firstname.lastname@example.org should your current sim still have no Internet data.
Please note: During the process of migration, we observed a few clients’routers had defaulted to the incorrect Profile/ APN settings. Please make 100% sure that the settings are correct APN = telkominternet
