The fibre rollout in South Africa has rapidly begun picking up speed. With more and more people aware of what fibre internet is and that it’s an option instead of getting a regular ADSL connection.

Vodacom is the latest company to offer fibre internet with their new Vodacom Fibre Broadband.

Vodacom Introduces a Fibre Offering

The company defines fibre broadband as “high speed broadband internet connectivity from 4 Mbps to 100 Mbps over a future proof fibre network to customers in residential communities. Broadband internet access over fibre essentially allows the user a faster and more reliable internet browsing experience, not supported by conventional methods of connecting to the internet”.

Available as either month-to-month or 12 to 24 month options, these offerings are only available through their third-party network operators in certain areas.

Louisa van Beek, Managing Executive for FTTX (Fibre-To-The-X) at Vodacom, says: ‘We are making good progress on our own fibre deployment. By entering into strategic wholesale agreements to sell services through other network providers, we have additional access to over 175 000 end points.’

‘The rollout of fibre remains a critical part of Vodacom’s growth strategy and our intention remains to pass one million fibre end-points within the next four years.’
