Vox 4/1 Mbps uncapped unshaped no FUP with wifi router - R504 per month with an activation of R1008

Cool Mbps Uncapped (is this shaped, ??FUP) with router (wifi??) - R609 per month - Yes you have no activation fee however, the activation is a once off with an extra R105? Guide me @PBCool -

I guess the activation fee is paid off monthly, with that extra R105 even tho you dont have one? Is that kinda the idea? Which essentially is still more expensive as R1008/12=R84

We have no FUP and supply a free router, with a connection fee we would be able to match the rate more than likely. But unfortunately with the risk of customers moving etc it's a risk to us. It's the business model unfortunately.

@pbcool is there any way to request fibre installation to my suburb?

Can you elaborate a bit?
My neighbours and I would dearly love some fibre action in our suburb but sadly, as yet, there is none. Is there anything we can do to request one of the fibre companies to do a roll out in our area?

You need enough demand in your area

You can register interest on Openserve and Vumatels site.
Thanks. I just registered interest on Vumatel's site. I looked on openserve's site during the week and wasn't able to find a request section. I ended up making them and received a copy-and-paste response, indicating that they didn't even bother actually reading my mail.

Good Day



Thank you for contacting Openserve Fibre to the Home.

Hi,

Anyone in the Cape Town region using VOX as there ISP?
Would like to know how the overall experience is especially on Vumatel?
latency, bandwidth speeds versus package speed.
1. I am not from Cape Town I am from Joburg, I use Vox with Vuma, I use them because their package is the best price.
2. No activation fee
3. No installation fee
4. No fair user policy on an uncapped package.

WebAfica comes in 2nd however their price is still more expensive. I have a 20/2 mbps

No Vox Fibre feedback posted for some months? Considering signing up with them, but not sure if the fact that there's no feedback/discussion going at all is a good or very bad thing.

Currently on Vox 40mb VDSL and can't really complain.

Wanted to go with Cool Ideas, but been monitoring their feedback thread for the last month odd and it's worrying enough that Vox looks like the safer option.
(The much touted Rocketnet is in Cpt only, so not an option)

Been on their 200/200 fibre package for 16 months now and I'm very happy.

Vumatel trenched.

Two questions - how long did it take for the fiber to be live in Cape Town, from the moment trenching started? and 2. What is your data usage like? I've pre-ordered with Vox - eager to know how P2P and normal downloads perform on their network
