Uncapped fibre prices in SA — 2014 to 2021

South Africa's uncapped home fibre prices have come down by as much as 85% since the early days of the service in the country.

While fibre has been used in the networks of telecoms providers like Telkom as far back as 2007, a pivotal moment in the rollout of fibre-to-the-home was when Vumatel's network went live in Parkhurst in October 2014.

Vumatel offered wholesale packages to Internet service providers (ISPs) with download speeds ranging from 4Mbps to 100Mbps.
