geri­atric shows? Per­haps the Cana­di­ans pay it – the SABC – so that they can clear space in their clut­tered archives? But I bet they’re much, much cheaper than what it pays its “con­sul­tants”.

Yeoville IN THE CUR­RENT eco­nomic sit­u­a­tion one tends to be scep­ti­cal about all the ad­ver­tis­ing we see daily. Be it the bill­boards, tele­vi­sion, mag­a­zines, news­pa­pers, etc. The eco­nomic down­turn has re­ally taught us to ques­tion be­fore you can think of buy­ing or en­ter­ing into any con­tact.

In this in­stance, Telkom has out­done it­self with its Telkom closer pack­age. I’m a proud user of its closer two pack­age. The prod­uct de­liv­ers as it’s ad­ver­tised. When I ap­plied for the phone I was told the first 30 min­utes af­ter 7pm and on week­ends would be free.

I chose not to even let that reg­is­ter – all I wanted was a land­line. I was ex­hil­a­rated when I got my first state­ment: it was the rental and my calls for that month amounted to R9,91.

With this prod­uct Telkom is just so close and I don’t re­gret hav­ing a land­line. So the slo­gan for this prod­uct is: “Telkom’s closer is re­ally close.”
