Did anyone think Telkom (ohh sorry Openserve) will move from being the most expensive to offer services on to the only operator with the highest entry point for fibre at the lowest price compared to all operators excluding Vuma Reach obviously.
I remember were begging Vuma to roll out now I see people saying I want to be on Openserve please.
In many cases Vumatel is now actually quite more pricey than Openserve. Openserve's network is of decent quality as well, considering that it's GPON.
My feeling is that they're pricing it to be competitive to drive uptake, and as per usual at some point in the future increase prices to increase revenue. Seems to have been the MO for most fibre operators.
In the meantime ISP's are swallowing the "free upgrades" and "covid speed incentive" pills with no increase, even though there is obviously an increase in costs when delivering a higher speed service.
FNOs know this. As an FNO if you increase prices you still retain clients but as an ISP if you increase prices the cancellations starts rolling in.
Lucky you... OS decided to rollout to basically every area surrounding mine... and they were supposed to be the first fibre FNO in my area, I remember receiving rollout coverage updates via email... then Vumatel just showed up lol. Still remain the only FNO choice.I moved from Openserve to Vumatel like 2 years ago... time to move back it seems...
