Massive Vodacom uncapped fibre price cuts

Vodacom has slashed the prices of all its Uncapped Broadband Connect Fibre offerings by between 30% and 40%, and has introduced a 3Mbps entry-level option.

Vodacom Business first launched its fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) services in September 2014.

Vodacom’s Broadband Connect Fibre uses the latest Passive Optical Network (PON) technology and gives businesses access to online services that were previously only available to large corporate customers.

These services include video collaboration, voice over internet protocol (VoIP), Hosted PBX, Office365, Cloud Backup, and other data applications.

The new monthly prices of the various Vodacom FTTB uncapped packages available on a 12-month contract are summarised in the table below.
