So I eventually phoned Vox, they said they have over 300 clients in a waiting list for fibre because @Frogfoot Fibre hasn't started installations in the Newton park area yet. They don't know why either.

e: Finally! Some one called to arrange installation. Just hoping this is the last of the troubles we have been having.

When did you apply for the installation if you don't mind me asking?

Hoping someone can help. Metrofibre are rolling out fibre in our part of Despatch.

Any preferences for ISPs? Got a application form from Vodacom but their FUP specifies a 500GB threshold for their 10meg connection and I'll 100% go over that on a monthly basis.

FUP's are not common these days, ive heard Vodacom is a pain to deal with also

I am with RocketNet on a different FNO but they are decent

Few other choices:

-Mind the speed
-Cool Ideas

So fibre was installed but apparently Frogfoot haven’t made the street “live” yet. A common thing in Newton Park 1.6 as the installer mentioned they had the same issue in another street. A neighbor came out and also said Frogfoot installed last week and still not live so it’s looking like a mess.
