Vodacom hard caps its "uncapped" Home 5G products — here's why

Vodacom launched uncapped home 5G products in July 2022. However, the packages cut subscribers off after reaching a certain usage threshold raising questions about whether they are genuinely "uncapped".

While other fixed-5G providers implement fair usage policies (FUPs) on uncapped services, limiting speeds once subscribers consume a set amount of data, none implements a hard cap as Vodacom does.
Don't call it uncapped then. Call it big limit 10000 alpha pro plus 24

“Our Home Internet products (including 5G) are designed to provide our customers with a ‘fibre-like’ connectivity for the home, especially in underserved areas,” a Vodacom spokesperson said.

No, it doesn't. Fibre is pure uncapped!

If it was fibre-liked it would be uncapped as well.
Uncapped and caps in the same heading :X3:
Did you notice how they try avoid getting quoted using the word cap. Their marketing department must have sent a memo out telling everyone to avoid using that word. Its been replaced with Hard Lock.
It's capped and throttled with added FUP for even more throttle.

I am struggling to see the advantage.
