Cheapest ever 100Mbps uncapped fibre-to-the-home in South Africa

Greencom, an Internet service provider that has partnered with Metrofibre Networx to offer fibre-to-the-home in communities around Gauteng, recently unveiled pricing for its services.

Using the infrastructure of Metrofibre Networx, a last-mile fibre network provider, Greencom offers FTTH services in Glenferness, Midrand, and is gauging interest in a number of other areas around Midrand and Johannesburg.

Greencom offers a number of FTTH packages, including competitively-priced uncapped, unshaped broadband services.

Its website lists prices for four uncapped, unshaped FTTH packages: Lite, Swift, Zoom, and Supersonic.

Supersonic, Greencom’s 100Mbps uncapped FTTH product, competes against the likes of Cybersmart and Cool Ideas which offer a similar service at R2,899 per month.

The prices for the deals are summarised in the table below.
