Was phoned a few days after receiving a new Telkom Line and then an Telephone Directory update form - Free Listing option that had to be returned
8 Days after form signed and ticked for free listing an Invoice was sent - On invoice it stated Invoice can not be cancelled and only discussed on contact number - Number stays engaged
