For the past 4 years, I have used Cell C + Vuma for my internet.
I am on a 20mbps fibre line but I feel like we may need something a little faster.

I have been very happy with Cell C as my ISP, their support is exceptional and their international capacity is reliable.

I checked Cell-C's website and apparently I can get a 100/50 Mbps openserve line for less than the cost of my current 20mbps vuma line.

I just want to ask the forums if anyone has any reasons why I shouldn't switch.
are their response times to faults generally worse than vuma?
Does their GPON network undergo more congestion than Vumatels active fibre network?.... is this noticeable?

I'd say go for it, openserve is the most reliable FNO in SA. You shouldn't notice a difference going from active Ethernet to GPON unless the OLT in your area is congested. That being said I believe openserve are quite quick to rectify congestion issues.

Openserve isn't perfect, but for the most part I'm happy with them. If I had a choice to go with others, I would probably stay, because money talks. Perhaps if I needed 1Gbps fibre I'd feel differently.
