    Default Brackenfell, Protea Heights (South). Vumatel Fibre interest

    Hi all.

    If you live in this area - see highlighted area below - please can I ask that you register your interest in Vumatel to come install fibre in our neighborhood! Interest can be noted here: https://vumatel.co.za/coverage/#map

    OpenServe has already laid fibre to the Kaapsig area next to Brackenfell Blv and the larger Sonkring area. They have also lit up the Turnberry estate. I've contacted them and was told they have no interested in lighting up our area in the foreseeable future. Vumatel however will if we can show interest!

    Please tell friends and family and post on your Facebook / social media groups please.

    And up we go.

    Only if people take the time to register interest and start promoting it will something come of this. Don't sit on your laurels folks! Make it happen.

    Thank you.

    I have no idea how large an area / small an area they would consider or how their nodes work, I just grabbed a random sized grid

    The more people show interest the better.

    In touch with them and I'll be doing flyers in post boxes in the coming weeks as well.

    Got a friend / neighbour to sign up as well.

    If I remember correctly, they laid some fiber all the way along Kruispad. Took them many moons, and nothing happened afterwards.

    Do you have any way to see how many people have signed up or rather, shown interest?

    Monday morning bump up.

    And no @eye_suc. I don't think you can see the number of people interested if the area is not already pink on VUMA's map.

    Got an update from Vumatel. They have confirmed that there has been an increase in the interest shown for fibre in the area.

    So thank you people for signing up and showing your interest.

    We need more however! Keep spreading the word.

    Ive gotten so ducked with this.

    Literally the fiber runs to about 100m down the road from me.

    Telkom in fact come asking every so often if Im happy with the fibre.

    No idea why they stopped there but convincing them to go just a little further isnt happening.

    That sucks badly. Do you fall under the openserve/telkom map that states whether fibre will be layed in your area? Vumatel will be our areas hero
