Openserve has notified ISPs that it will terminate DSL and copper services in areas which are already covered by fibre networks on 1 September 2020.
“To this end, we will therefore be discontinuing all existing DSL and Openserve Copper Connect (OCC) services in these areas,” Openserve said.
What this means, in simple terms, is that many ADSL subscribers will have to migrate to fibre by next month.

Even if your area is not affected, it is still a good idea to move to fibre – as it offers higher speeds and a more reliable connection.
Fibre is particularly suitable for using bandwidth-intensive services like Netflix and YouTube without data usage concerns.
It is also great to support work-from-home activities like video conferencing, using online productivity tools, and access online learning resources.
The biggest benefit, however, is affordability. Uncapped fibre products are much cheaper than comparable ADSL, VDSL, or wireless options.
