Stoked to get an email that the monthly cost for my 200/100 line is dropping by R300, which is substantial.
Also paying for in laws fibre and they getting a speed bump from 10/10 to 25/25 for the same price.

Thanks for some good news today CISP

I have the standard free Archer C20 router and I'm getting bumped up to 100Mbps. This router does support 100Mbps but will it limit me to less than I could get with a Gigabit router?

@PBCool I knew you guys would come through. Glad to be getting the upgrade to 200mb from 100mb and the bump to 100mb for my uploads will be most welcome as a YouTube content creator

I also got the email and thanks for the price decrease for the 200mb package! Just one thing that I noticed, the 100mb package has an upload specified of 25mb. I hope that it's a typo, because otherwise that is a serious downgrade for 100mb users :unsure:

If it is a typo, as I might just consider downgrading then to save the extra R200 a month, but will enjoy the 200mb once those upgrades come through :D

Also saw that and figured it MUST be a typo... surely

No, it should be fine on 100Mbps, a Gigabit capable router will still give you 100Mbps.

Hmm, the email that went out showed this, where is this typo, on the product selection page ?

And before anyone asks, it doesn't seem likely that we'll provide free gigabit routers for free upgrades, but there will be an announcement about it soon.

Very nice to see :thumbsup:


BTW do you guys have revised pricing on the Openserve data-only services?

Will I not get a speed slightly over 100Mbps (like 101 or something), but then the router limits it?
You might, but anything above the 100Mbps is a bonus -- so your call... Depending on Openserve's provisioning, TCP and PPPoE overhead, it's unlikely that you'll see much above 98-100Mbps, but if you do great.

I wouldn't bother counting cents in the Rand, if you get my drift.

Alright, clarified, the 100Mbps upgraded package will be 100/50 -- definately a typo.
Shew, I hope it's the same everwhere. Was gonna downgrade to the new '50/25' to save costs after march but then thought 100/50 upload will help with my cloud backups and also allow two family members to stream 4k from my NAS via Plex .

Plex sharing FTW.

But I didn't read or see any of this. Don't ask don't tell.... :laugh:
