Cape Town residents fighting for fibre

Residents from Constantia in Cape Town launched a request for proposals on 27 February 2015 as part of a drive to get fibre-to-the-home in their neighbourhood.

According to the residents group it is planning to engage with a number of fibre service providers and identify the most favourable proposal.

The group said it supports an open-access fibre model, and believes that there is room for multiple service providers.

The successful service provider will be appointed at the end of March, and fibre-to-the-home sign-ups will also start then.
