Octotel is in the final stages of completing its network roll-out from Sea Point to Three Anchor Bay, and will expand to Mouille Point and Bantry Bay in the next two months.

“Our focus is on connecting apartment buildings, with a target of 15,000 homes in the Sea Point area this year,” said Octotel CTO Joe Botha.

“We’ve seen exceptional demand for fibre services along the Atlantic Seaboard, and orders are rolling in through our five ISP partners.”

Webafrica, Cool Ideas, RSA WEB, Vanilla, and PC Network offer services on Octotel’s network.

Octotel offers four line speed options:

  • 10Mbps
  • 20Mbps
  • 100Mbps
  • 1Gbps

“Pricing starts at R429 per month for a 10Mbps capped service, with a 100Mbps uncapped service at R999 per month being one of the most popular products on the network.”

A R1,710 installation fee also applies.

Octotel will be hosting a community information evening in Sea Point on 15 March where members of the public can get answers to any questions about the new fibre network.
