    Openserve launches free fibre and ADSL speed upgrades

    These upgrades are not really made for higher end users. They're for the people who can mostly only afford 10mbit or 20mbit and the kids are now doing online schooling and parents are work from home so they need the upgrade. People who are on 40,100,200 do not really need the upgrade.

    Don't think this is hidden? Used the vodacom app over the weekend and got 1GB data for R100, but Vodacom being Vodacom, they experienced a "technical error". So I used the FNB app, FNB app showed 500mb data for R100. But when I purchased it, I got 1GB for R100

    Wireless is a medium. Fibre is a medium. Wireless fibre is just a marketing term which makes it sound special because it still has the word fibre in it. Also, holy crap. R1750 for a 10mbit "wireless fibre" connection with a 300GB soft cap.
