    Any Idea when SADV will offer speeds higher than 100mbps?

    I presume there is hardware investment needed on their side but intrigued to find out if there is any plan for them to offer it as the other providers like Vumetel already offer higher speeds. Thanks!

    Migrating while with Vodacom on Vumatel?

    As the result of a pretty convoluted situation Vodacom is my current FTTH ISP. I'm having a terrible time with the router situation, as the Huawei router that they supplied doesn't suite my needs, and they've gone to great lengths to prevent users from using their own routers. When I phoned...

    Anyone with some ISP inside knowledge know why the FTTH rollouts in PE have basically stood still for the last year? I've seen Open Serve, Liquid Telecoms, MTN, Vodacom, all laying fibre throughout suburbs, but the coverage maps haven't really changed much for 12 months?? Any ideas?
