    I understand, thanks. Important thing is there is at least some kind of movement when it comes to fibre in the area [emoji16]

    Florauna, Pretoria North - Fibre Signups Please Help.

    So, just to add to the confusion..... there were just two people (with names tags and everything) at my house. One was from Vumatel and the other was from R and G Group. The person from R and G Group tried to sell me some product from Vodacom (on LTE) if I sign up now and when fibre is installed...

    I wonder if they will be starting from scratch and when will they start again with the trenching?

    That is very weird. When I was driving past earlier it was Vumatel guys. Vumatel even have preorders up in their website for the area. Even Afrihost and Axxess have preorders up for this area. Maybe they are dividing the area up between the 3?

    Wired router instead of wireless for fibre

    That is true. Did not work on NAS anyway. Tried installing, but looks like CPU usage was too high; kept bombing out. Anyway, no harm no foul

    Wired router instead of wireless for fibre

    I actually did some research on that yesterday. I found out I can install the controller on my Synology NAS. This will make it easier, seeing as it runs 24/7.

    Wired router instead of wireless for fibre

    Yes, I was thinking of getting a switch with POE, then I don't need the injectors for the AP's

    Wired router instead of wireless for fibre

    That is good to hear, thanks. I can then just maybe add a switch after the router for the AP's and future cameras.

    Wired router instead of wireless for fibre

    So, looks like fibre will be installed in our area in the within the next 2-3 months. They have already completed the trenching for the sleeve. This also made me have a look at what is required for fibre and process after CPE is installed. Good idea to actually upgrade some of my equipment in...

    So I was just driving down Brits Road and they are busy with hoarding off areas on the pavement. So I asked them if they are from Tshwane. They are apparently subcontractors who are preparing to dig trenches for fibre. They did not want to say for which company though. I think it's happening...

    Vumatel had people walking around Pretoria North today. They could not tell me exactly how many people are interested. But they did say majority seems to have an interest in fibre

    Agree 100%. They should put a counter on their website. Unfortunately I have no connections in the area

    Do you shop at Dion Wired?

    No. Used to though. But that was long time ago. Their specials were actually good in the old days

    Thanks Quattro! OK. This is good news. When I registered, it said we need 1220 more sign ups in this area. Anyone have connections at Rekord Noord? Would be nice if they ran some kind of article in there as a start.
