Is free fax to email really free?

Yes, it is free to receive a fax number and it is free to receive faxes in your email.  The receiver does not pay anything if they use the service to receive faxes.

The Fax numbers are provided a Telkom.

Telkom, as well as the other Mobile and telephone companies, do charge their users  (the sender) to make calls. The sender pays their telephone company / mobile service provider directly for these calls.

Kindly also note that the telecommunication companies and mobile service providers might charge a slightly higher call rate for faxes. However, the call rates are strictly regulated, and are set by the regulator. You will never be charged more than what the regulator has set for fax calls.

The current call rates may be found on the Telkom website.

The fax service provider is independent from Telkom and does not charge anyone any additional fees – only the telecommunication company would charge. The fax service provider therefore provides a free service to receive faxes.
