Directel and Workonline Communications have announced the launch of a new fibre Internet service called RocketNet.
It promises to be one of the first Internet service providers in SA to include IT support within its product offering.
This will include installing and analysing the system a client needs, and advising consumers on how to use their Wi-Fi networks and get better signal strength.
RocketNet will launch in Kyalami Estates, Sunninghill, and Barbeque Downs – all of which run on Metrofibre Networx’s fibre infrastructure.
It plans to move into other areas of the country in the future.
“Directel currently procures most of its upstream traffic from Workonline Communications, allowing us to provide a high-quality service with good redundancy to all of our clients,” said Simon Swanepoel, head of RocketNet.
RocketNet advertises the following packages in the areas where it has launched:
- 25Mbps: R995 per month
- 50Mbps: R1,395 per month
- 100Mbps: R1,999 per month
A once-off connection fee of R1,500 is applicable. All RocketNet’s accounts offer symmetric download and upload speeds, and are “fully uncapped” and unshaped.
