MWEB has decreased prices and increased cap sizes on its fibre to the home (FTTH) accounts that run on Vumatel’s infrastructure in Johannesburg.
The service provider announced the changes at the start of December, saying that the new packages would kick in from 1 January 2016.
MWEB said that it noticed an increasing demand for FTTH connectivity in the last 6 months, prompting it to relook its offerings.
It said it has customers in over 50 areas signed up to its FTTH products since launching their offering at the start of 2015.
MWEB will also launch partnerships with Frogfoot and Fibrehoods, in areas such as Constantia, Parkview, Craighall, and Century City.
The FTTH price and cap changes are listed below.
