    Fibre Backbone

    Good evening, I was wondering if anyone knows the process of getting a Fibre Backbone to a complex? As the current our ISP is currently using has been awful, we've never gone a month without having an incident and it's frustrating. Preferably we'd like to get a backbone that works with a...

    Mweb speeds

    Howzit guys, Sometime last year due to COVID, the company I work for decided to pay for our fibre lines so that we could work from home. We were given the base speed of 20/20 Mbps on the Mweb ISP. Now, because I wasn't paying for the fibre, I wasn't too fussed when the speeds were inadequate or...

    Vumatel the new Mediocre fiber provider

    Vumatel have bought the fiber backbone infrastructure from SA Digital Village. Since they have taken over the service has deteriorated to an alarming extent.

    Axxess is trolling me

    Back in 2017 I had endless issues trying to get Openserve fibre through Axxess, where there was a fault, the fault was repaired and the order marked as complete when they hadn't actually pulled fibre to my apartment yet - just fixed the fault. I spent nearly 3 months trying to get them to create...

    Openserve/Mweb Putrid Service

    I have applied for fibre at Mweb with Openserve 13 April 2021. Sign up went well. Installers came the next day 14 April 2021. Still no connection to date. Not sure who is messing me around, spoken to Mweb 5 times already. No joy.

    Is Open Access Dead?

    Is there really a long-term point in this mad rush for Open Access Networks? The majority of consumers on FTTH end up choosing the cheapest product they can find, and very few stay loyal to a company or brand name. With the amount of competition, low margins and the ongoing price war between...

    Webafrica Clawback Fraud

    A clawback fee of R999 has been debited 3 times for the ridiculous free-to-use router they give you. I'm unable to get through to them properly, the moment I think the issue has been resolved they debit me again. It's nearly impossible to get your money back but incredibly quick for it to evade...
