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.
