After reading this> https://www.businessinsider.co.za/v...-delays-while-mitchells-plain-due-soon-2019-5 a while back, I thought seeing is believing... Well contractors busy cutting up pavements in our area and the guys told me its for Vumatel!

Got in touch with Vumatel and got pointed to https://mitchellsfibre.co.za/ so VERY excited for it to go live!

Looks like Afrihost, Cool Ideas and MWEB is on board for now.

20/10 uncapped for R399 is a really awesome deal.
I've seen they have been battling with some vandalization but hopefully, those fools have realized that they can't sell fiber as they did with copper...

To think my 20mb adsl line rental alone is R509 and going up in September...this is an absolute bargain!

Add to this R209 something landline rental plus whatever calls are made...Telkom can kiss my ass once the fibre is live

Kiss our ass lol

Actually Telkom will lose so many customers in Mitchell's Plain now
Its peculiar that the big guys never really picked up on a study I did as part of my job whereby Mitchell's Plain, albeit a low income according to demographics, is an area that's in the 40's where age is concerned so most of the older folk who owns these houses don't owe a cent to the City of Cape Town.

There's much more expendable cash "laying around under mattresses" and if people are willing to spend R800+ per month simply to watch Man UTD or Liverpool to play then why can't they afford ADSL or Fibre...?

Studies also proved a while back that the Promenade Mall in Mitchell's Plain is the busiest mall in SOUTHERN AFRICA! Not sure if its still the case though but go in there anytime of the day, month or year and it looks like Christmas!

R399 for a 20meg Fibre line. I'm in... I see Telkom looking to increase fixed line tarrifs again. This is why we can't have nice things with Telkom

Add to that how reluctant Telkom is to roll out fibre in medium income areas.

This is actually not a Vumatel initiative at all.
They just pointed OP to the correct company, Mitchell's Fibre.

Go with Afrihost. I can't say they are the best, and they are definitely not the worst. The self help service they have online is epic though. Best thing. You don't have to beg tele operators to ever cancel anything. You do it yourself. They do everything through Octotel.

Ah then maybe I am mistaken.
Just assumed that since the fibre is being laid by Mitchell's Fibre and not Vumatel, they act as a separate entity.
Maybe Mitchell's Fibre was started by Vumatel?
