Most of us will probably never see a strand of it. I'm guessing it will cover the usual rich suburbs...

I think they're laying down Bellairs though ; so densely populated areas as well!

Please, focus on Potholes, Electricity and all other basic services. Then, if you still bored and have nothing to do, start tinkering with broadband. Leave it to the professionals.

Wait till you ask for pricing. Not so sweet. I was doing work for a MOE (Municipal owned entity - i.e. owned by Joburg, but not part of Joburg Metro) and they were quoted an exhorbitant amount to join, even though the fibre was already terminated across the road. They didn't go for it.
