    Tough decision (although good place to be in :D) Just as an example looking at highest speeds on ...... say Afrihost (most ISP's are in the same ballpark): Openserve 200Mbps/100Mbps - R1117 Metrofibre 100Mbps/100Mbps - R1419, 200Mbps/200Mbps - R2087

    Yes, I don't get Metrofibre; so many different stories. Last year they said the eastern side of Pretoria North will be last, so we were looking at middle 2021.

    Openserve have been very busy the last week. They have been splicing quite a bit in the area. So, I don't think it will be too long, for the people in the Openserve area.

    So, installation was done. Took about 1.5 hours. They did a nice job; very neat. It helped that I prepared end last year, seeing as I have a flat roof. I think in ground will be a bit more work, but I am happy. Took another hour to get access details sorted. But now getting 194Mbps down and...

    Pole is actually fairly new. They replaced it about 2 years ago. Picture is just a bit at an angle :D I think Openserve stop at this box. From there to termination point inside house will be by ISP's contractor :unsure:
