Vumatel has gone live in Cape Town, bringing 1Gbps (Gigabit per second) fibre to Tamboerskloof.
Endorsed by the Tamboerskloof community (represented by TBK Watch), Vumatel started rolling out its network in May and connected the first home this week.
Vumatel has received further endorsement from two other community organisations in the City Bowl.
Oranjezicht Higgovale Neighbourhood Watch (OH) and Devil’s Peak Vredehoek Neighbourhood Watch (DPV) will get connected to Vumatel’s network before the end of the year.
These communities will enjoy the benefits of Vumatel’s high speed open access network, giving residents multiple service providers to choose from and speeds up to 1Gbps.
Ten thousand homes around the city bowl and all schools within the roll-out area will have access to Vumatel’s network.
The expansion comes off the back of the company’s successful rollout in the greater Johannesburg area in which a total of 30 suburbs have already been, or are in the process of being connected.
