    Looking at moving from Rain 5G to FTTH

    You don't have to take their router. You can use your own. Good luck getting a proper router for R249. They have to subsidize free hardware somehow. :unsure:

    Pierre van ryneveld ftth/ wireless fibre

    Got both MetroFibre and Telkom/Openserve ads in my mailbox - Telkom yesterday and Metrofibre this morning. I really don't see how Metrofibre will get any customers in this area at all. They're stupidly expensive. Granted Telkom's offer for R399 is only 5Mbit upload which doesn't work well for...

    Pierre van ryneveld ftth/ wireless fibre

    I got approval within one day of making my pre-order. Made it last week Friday afternoon, exactly 24 hours later I got the OpenServe reference number in my email. It looks like both networks are now competing on who can go live first as that network will probably grab a bunch of customers...

    This makes me really happy. Been a long time coming. I'm glad Metrofibre slacked. It was worth the wait for a cheaper provider to sneak in. :)

    Pierre van ryneveld ftth/ wireless fibre

    I asked @AfriNatic a while ago when I found out via the security group on Aerosud if I can pre-order and he said Openserve needed to update first, so a couple of days ago he sent a pm to mention I can now pre-order. Only saw it today though, but my pre-order is now made. Let's hope it doesn't...

    iPhone 12 Rumours & Release Date

    But I own one of the iPhone 12 variants so I keep an eye on this thread for useful info. :thumbsup: You already mentioned that you're invested in the Apple ecosystem so get an iPhone, unless you plan on selling the apple watch?

    Yup. I walked right into that one.

    iPhone 12 Rumours & Release Date

    First world problems? Sounds more like bragging about all your devices rather than asking for advice to be honest. Edit: if you actually want a serious answer, your Apple watch will be useless on the S21. For the MacBook and Apple TV: Doesn't matter if you get the iPhone or Android.

    Can't activate Pay as you use / R50 per gig

    Yes, Rain no longer offers pay per use. See: https://mybroadband.co.za/forum/threads/rain-has-ended-its-r50-gb-package.1116880/

    Price cuts and speed upgrades from Openserve

    5 years from now when one of those networks is congested, unusable or had huge price hikes you'll be happy to have two providers to choose from. Fibre companies are actually creating tiny monopolies in most neighbourhoods due to the cost of deploying fibre. Most people are stuck with one...
