    Default Helderkruin + Wilropark + Roodekrans FTTH via Vumatel

    I'm starting this thread in the hope to hear that there are other users in these areas who are interested in fibre. This area is comprised of mostly residential homes and we don't really seem to have an ideal central community platform where we could all petition together for something like this, so I'm hoping this can be a platform to voice our interest

    Please sign the petition here: http://www.petitions24.com/roodepoort_ftth
    123Net make it easy to track our area interest too. Please sign up here separately: https://123net.co.za/en/front/areas/expansionplans - Less than 300 interested users needed for each area to make it viable. Wilro Park and Helderkruin are both already on the list, let's make this happen

    Why not try one of the neighbourhood watch platforms? The Newsletter, watsapp groups etc. We have over a 1500 members from Wilropark, Roodekrans, Poortview, Amarosa, Breaunanda and Helderkruin view? Perhaps you can mail or contact the Ops room to get the contact details for the newsletter and add your petition link and details? However, I think advertising is only free for members... That is your ideal central community platform. :-)

    Sounds like a great idea. I'm not very involved tho so I dunno where to start lol. Not on that particular list (I think my dad is though so I can ask him). How do I join / contact the Ops room? XD

    Cause yeah I think if we could get some numbers together we could put together quite a compelling proposal... If Telkom doesn't respond I'm sure one of the other vendors will... but I think the reason they've ignored us so far is because it's been difficult to get a good guage of the interest levels. Needs to be a team/combined effort though, not sure if one person doing flyers will be quite enough

    Hi all,

    Has there been much response to this thread? I'm curious, as I am definitely interested in getting FTTH in Wilropark as well. I know that with the other providers (Vumatel etc.) they have a "minimum viable" uptake. If you think relatively to the area, there are many businesses dotted along Ontdekkers road, as well as two fairly large shopping centers, Westgate and Horizon. One would have to really canvas these businesses and the other residents though to get enough momentum for fiber.

    The idea of also perhaps involving the community watch is not a bad one. I know that they have been mulling over the idea of putting up cameras in various locations, and perhaps having proper access to fiber may help with that initiative as well.

    I did not know you can access it directly via DFA. Damn, that fibre is so close.

    They DO have connections for businesses. Not the standard home stuff however.

    I think it must be in the hundreds before they take notice?

    I received a notice that there will be a public meeting on a Vumatel fibre rollout project at Laerskool Helderkruin, Wednesday evening 14 June 2017 at 18:30.

    Suburbs named are Horizon exts, Kloofendal, Carenvale, Helderkruin, Horizon Park, Honeyhills, Roodekrans and Wilropark.

    I see Vumatel has updated their coverage map and we are now able to show our interest: https://vumatel.co.za/coverage
