    Meh, was really hopeful on that one. They even had banners and flags up

    Oh well, guess I continue to see if Vumatel actually delivers anything someday.

    Vumatel have canceled their plans in Brackenhurst and Brackendowns. They did a few test drills, and then decided to cancel all roll out because as they said "There are already four Fibre providers currently working in the area".
    Who those four providers are we cannot figure out, because we are currently only aware of two partial roll outs (OpenServe and Vodacom).

    I'm not sure if Vumatel are carrying on with their plans for Meyersdal, but they were told to get out of the Meyersdal Estate (the one South of Hart Avenue) because Vodacom has already installed in that Estate and they don't want any more digging there.

    I'm in Alberante and both Vuma and Seacom were very active with trenching and installing conduits but it all seems to have come to a grinding halt now.

    Yeh Vodacom is a bit pricey b ut my options are limited as my LTE is really crap lately
    Yeah, I am on month 2 month as well. They are almost finished with the install. It's going fairly quick.

    I’ve preordered with Vodacom. They’ve left the ticket open until fibre is installed. Going for the 40/20. Their 100/50 is dam expensive and they don’t have a 50/50 which is dumb, but either way still better than what I have. Once someone else comes I’ll jump ship.

    Last year Cuna they handed out booklets down the road from me and it had multiple isp in there with prices. Don’t see any of them active in verwoerdpark yet. Vodacom said that fibre is active already in some parts so it’s defintely very quick. I do wonder if anyone has been able to go with anyone else still
