Openserve free fibre speed upgrades announced

Many of Openserve's fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) customers are getting free speed upgrades in the next few months.

Major Internet service provider (ISP) Afrihost, which resells Openserve FTTH packages, recently notified customers about the line speed increases via email.
 
Still no gigabit openserve. That 200/200 package might be attractive to those who are only on 500/250 to benefit from the TX speed.
 
Who needs a gigabit service at home? It doesn't make sense for the normal household. Are you planning to start a WISP?
People who don’t want to sit around waiting for the world to pass by waiting for transfers to complete. Each to their own and their own use case.
 
For what? Genuine question.
I watch most of the stuff on YT at x2 speed, so watching something at 4k/60 quality at x2 speed will take about 100mb/s , add a couple other streams at full quality like maybe a cricket match and one of those ambience ASMR videos at 8K, uploading full res videos to cloud storage and download/updating modern games all at the same time.

I'm one of these people who naturally like to push things to it's limits.

Agree. WFH works for me on higher speed. Not going in to the office to upload a 512GB data disk.

Nor download.
 
Not too long ago, all we had was price gouging ADSL.
Now peeps are all like, "Wot this rubbish?!! 100Gb line speeds or GTFO!"

Everything has updates and they are gigs now, so if they are updated quickly you can play quicker. Streaming for multiple people, gaming. This isn't 2010, a gbs isn't that fast anymore really.
 
Openserve has been pretty good at upgrades. I started with 10/5 for R399 a couple of years back and will now be on 50/25 for only R449. That's half decent.
