The process of changing your Telkom LTE package

Read this article if you want to learn more about upgrading, downgrading, renewing or migrating your LTE package.

How upgrading or downgrading your LTE package to a new deal works:

The ability to change your Telkom LTE package depends on how many months you are into your contract or commitment period:

1) If you are 1 - 3 months into your Telkom LTE contract period, you cannot change your package. In this instance, if you want a new deal you will need to take out a new contract.

 

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.
