Octotel, a Cape Town-based open access fibre-to-the-home provider, has announced its first ISP packages and pricing.
Webafrica and RSAWEB will provide Internet services over the Octotel network.
“Octotel is currently talking to two other well-know ISPs, who also have plans to offer services over our fibre network,” said Joe Botha, MD of Octotel.
Both ISPs are offering their services with month-to-month contracts and a R1,500 installation fee.
Webafrica’s offering starts at R429 per month for a 10Mbps capped service and, on the high end, RSAWEB offers an uncapped 100Mbps service for R1999 per month.
To help speed up the process of getting fibre into apartment buildings, Octotel has introduced a Fibre Champion programme.
The programme aims to mobilise champions in communities to support Octotel’s fibre initiatives, by encouraging individuals to engage with body corporates and their neighbours about signing up
“The Fibre Champion initiative formalises this process and adds some rewards. Fibre Champions save R1,500 on their fibre install and can earn up to R5,000 in commission.”
Octotel started rolling out its services in Sea Point in 2015, and has extended its Fibre Champion programme to include any apartment building in the greater Cape Town area.
