Vumatel testing 10 Gbps fibre

Vumatel says its 10 Gbps fibre offering is still under development, but testing is going well.

The fibre network operator initially announced plans to launch 10 Gbps services in March 2021, saying the commercial launch would follow a month-long testing phase with Cool Ideas.
 
Please, first cover all the areas still without fibre.
Least have limited footprint in 50% of all SA town's then go back to 10Gbps line
Is quite clear Vuma/Voda is going to just upgrade infrastructure in areas which already have Optical Fibre Cables on the ground

They'll go wherever there is demand and feasibility.

True that's why I didn't say all towns but don't icasa in force this obligations to connect unconnected or everything is left to Mobile Network Operators?
I think if MNO has to cover 99% geo population with 5G before 2030
FNO need to cover 49% of geo population with FTTH no matter is standard FTTH or subsidized FTTH
This rule will take all FNO's footprint into account meaning the rule will calculate all footprint from FNO'S and turn it into one coverage footprint to conclude 49% rule
 
Vuma is using Active Ethernet technology over CWDM over SM fibre, so for them, the only challenges are the cost of SFPs and CPE Routers (although CCR with SFP+ cages is super cheap) and upgrading of POP backhaul and CORE. These are relatively incremental changes that can be phased in.

For the other incumbent, Telkom using GPON connected to MSANs, 1G per customer is already maxing out 50% of GPON port making provision more costly.

10G should be enough for "Metaverse" and my Linux isos

I believe Vuma has a mix of active and passive. I would imagine though that their effective contention ratio from customer to core is not much different between the two technologies. As for Telkom they could migrate to faster GPON standards eg. 40gbit/s NGPON2 in the future or 10gbit/s in the short term.
