Hey Guy's I am looking at all sort of fibre isp's, and well all of them promise something but has so much backlash. Hidden speeds and not always reliable. I want a fibre isp that cares for their customers. a Fibre isp that actually give you what you pay for without this premium or elite BS. Fibre is coming soos to my area and well I would like to hear from the people out there, that have experience in all of this and actually knows about these fibre related isp's.
Basically which suits you the best.
Thank you for reading my poor structured sentences, I am very annoyed by these isp that promise you something and does not deliver it up to the standard..

Are you sure about it because I have heard complaints about during peak hours people that are not premium, they get less than what they pay for

No, I wasn’t being serious about Afrihost.

I’m with Cool Ideas and find them excellent.

If on Vumatel, I highly recommend MacroLan (soon to be Seacom Western Cape). Uncapped, unthrottled and unshaped. They cover the R1750 Vumatel installation fee with no clawback period (confirmed it with them in writing) on a month-to-month contract. They also don't charge the R1000 activation fee that some other ISPs charge. So right of the bat, you save R2750. Been with them for 3 months now and I have no real complaints. Only issues I really had was sorting out the installation but wrote all about that experience in this thread.

Edit: Saw you mentioned SADV. I see MacroLan as an ISP on SADV network but SADV doesn't have a handy shop like Vumatel to compare pricing.

I have a 10/2 connection for R560 a month. Only 2 or 3 other providers that are slightly (+-R60/month) cheaper but they don't cover the installation fee while also charging the activation fee.

We had a deal in our area for a Vox package, while i was skeptical at first as I didn't know them well, One year later I find them to be great, never any issues with our line, prices are great as well.

Can't say I have any problem with the connection dropping. Supposed to get 1.25mb/s download speed on a 10Mbps line. But consistently get 1.35mb/s cause the line actually gives me 10.8Mbps. That .8 amounts to an extra 100kb/s. Playing Dota, my ping is consistently jumping between 1 and 3 which is not bad at all. On ADSL and LTE my ping never dropped below 40 for comparison. When browsing, I do roughly once or twice a week get an issue with pages not wanting to load but it resolves itself in a few seconds.

@AcceleritZa is the ISP you're looking for they're month to month ISP with zero contracts involved can always cancel your service if you're no longer interest, the other best part is that you can pause your account if you do decide to want to go on holiday and pay for the month you're looking to get the service.
I will go and give it a look thank you so much

Wow okay I am really looking forward to give them a call, because it almost sounds to good to be true. Thank you very much.
