That's a 1TB FUP to half speed if I remember correctly, after that it's halving every 250; was checking it out when I was moving to fiber.
Yes you are basically correct:

100Mbps Uncapped:
• At 1000GB consumed (66% of soft cap) – drop speed to50Mbps
• At 1250GB consumed (83% of soft cap) – drop speed to25Mbps
• At 1500GB consumed (100% of soft cap) – drop speed to 10Mbps until end of the month

Our household normally don't use above 800GB per month so I am fine with this for now.

Wow. Sent VOX a request for pricing at 9am to Head Office and CPT branch and no response yet.
Business must be booming.

I wish people knew what the profit margins on fibre was. And that most fibre providers that give you a free to use router only starts showing a profit on the 20th month of a 24 month contract or something.
There's a difference between your ISP and fibre provider. The providers make their ROI in 2-3 years with the prices they charge. They're the ones ripping everyone off.

Price is still a bit steep here I pay R985 with VOX for 50 down and 5 up, that's cheaper than Telkoms 20 and 40 packages and not to mention I don't have FUP :ROFL:
That cannot be openserve? I am paying vox 10xx for 20/10..

To be frank their service is crap. Installing to FTTB at two office locations ... On going since last November. They promised one would take 4 months. Now on month 8 ...

OK so VOX finally replied.

Currently paying Telkom about R1300 for 40 / 10 with unlimited phone calls to other Telkom numbers.
VOX quoted about R1400 for 100 / 50 including VOIP service :unsure:
