For many years, fibre-to-the-home was a luxury which not many South Africans could experience – but things have changed recently.
Many small fibre operators, including Vumatel, Frogfoot, Cybersmart, Octotel, and Fiberhoods, have aggressively grown their fibre footprint in major South African cities.
South Africans living in these areas now have a choice between Telkom’s ADSL and VDSL products, wireless broadband products, and FTTH services.
The table below shows how uncapped FTTH prices from prominent providers compare against the total price of uncapped ADSL and VDSL services.
