FTTH Price Shootout: Vodacom vs MTN vs Telkom

Last week Vodacom signed lease agreements with Fibrehoods, Openserve, Century City Connect, Vumatel and Dark Fibre Africa to deliver its fibre products.

Vodacom customers will now have access to the Vodacom Fibre services through these providers, including Vodacom Fibre Broadband, Vodacom Fibre Fixed Voice, and Value Added Services.

As part of this announcement, Vodacom also announced new fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) prices for these new services.

Vodacom’s latest products, which are all capped, offer significantly better value-for-money than its previous products.

The table below shows how Vodacom’s new FTTH products stack up against its main competitors – Telkom and MTN.
