Uncapped business broadband prices: fibre versus VDSL

Vodacom Business is the latest company to launch fibre based broadband products, growing the number of high-speed broadband options available to businesses.

To date, fibre based broadband products have been slow to reach businesses and consumers in South Africa. However, this is changing.

Many companies are rolling out fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) networks, and South Africans are starting to benefit from these projects.

Many of these new FTTH and FTTB products are taking on Telkom’s fixed broadband services – currently 20Mbps and 40Mbps VDSL.

This raises the question as to how Vodacom Business and Neotel’s fibre based broadband services stack up against Telkom’s VDSL products. The following table answers that question.

We’ve also included iBurst’s BusinessLink services, which offer a wireless alternative to VDSL and fibre.
