If anyone can please give me a proper answer or just keep me and anyone interested in this Thread just up to date that will be much Appreciated..

Hi Aubrey,

Dark Fibre Africa have existing fibre infrastructure in Vereeniging. However, they only supply business fibre, not residential. The good news is that the physical fibre is already in town and can be pulled into residential areas. I highly doubt that Openserv will take up the task of trenching anytime soon as we can see from our portal that they are not even in planning stage. (Openserve planning stage to trenching is usually 12+ months, if we are lucky.)

We currently provide competitive wireless alternatives for Vereeniging clients struggling on ADSL, and are investigating the opportunity deploying "fibre to the home" (FTTH) to the residences of Vereeniging. We would love to do this!!

But, a business case for fibre would require the community to show sufficient interest as we would need a minimum of homes to sign up... But, it is very possible and can be done rather quickly once we take action.

If you could assist us in gathering interest, please inbox us and we can discuss.
