It will probably require new ONTs that can handle 2.5/10 Gbps, and the router would probably have to use a sfp+ port to connect to the ONT? Don't think normal cables can do 10 Gbps, really?There has been no official comms from Vumatel with any ISPs in this regard - so unlikely that you will hear anything at this point - but. There are no commercials for a 10G product from Vumatel (or 2.5/5G for that matter). If anything does come of this, besides fluff pieces for MyBB, we will send out more info.
1G sounds plenty for this kind of usage... But yes, it would be great to break the 1G barrier in SA. It would also be great for local cloud to be able to deliver 1G speeds - there are still too many 1G only servers running services locally, which means we're putting the cart in front of the horse with 1G+ services.
I'd be much more excited for a 2.5G product than 10G to the home. You can get prosumer grade hardware affordably that can make the most of 2.5G. 10G needs some serious metal to work well.
