Vodacom has launched uncapped fibre price plans on third-party fibre networks, with speeds ranging from 4Mbps to 100Mbps.
Both its uncapped and existing capped offerings are available as month-to-month, 12-month, or-24 month deals, with networks like Fibrehoods, Openserve, and Vumatel supporting the Vodacom products.
As with most uncapped broadband packages, there are fair usage policies which must be taken into account. Month-to-month deals also require users to pay in a once-off fee.
MyBroadband spoke to Vodacom about the terms and conditions of its fibre deals – as detailed below.
First up, the fair use policies of the uncapped packages.
“When the FUP limit is reached, the line speed is reduced to 2Mbps for the remainder of the month,” said Vodacom.
The fair use policy limits are:
- 10Mbps – 300GB
- 20Mbps – 500GB
- 25Mbps – 500GB
- 40Mbps – 1,100GB
- 50Mbps – 1,100GB
- 100Mbps – 2,200GB
Certain contracts also incur once-off charges, while there is an installation fee on the Vumatel network.
“On the Vumatel network, the customer remains responsible for the installation fee of R1,710, while the installation is free on all other networks,” said Vodacom.
Vodacom Fibre packages on a 12-month and month-to-month basis have a once-off activation fee of R499 and R999 (R899 for Vodacom self-built network) respectively.
“The service activation is free on 24-month contracts.”
For users who need additional data during the month, Vodacom sells top-up data bundles – priced as follows:
- 20GB – R120
- 50GB – R200
- 100GB – R250
- 200GB – R300
- 500GB – R500
