What’s the fastest fibre in my area?

To find out the fastest fibre in your area you’ll need to start by looking at the available networks in your area using a fibre coverage map. Fibre packages tend to be month-to-month rather than long term contracts as you find with cellphone packages. Superfast fibre broadband in South Africa reaches right up to 1000 Mbps upload and 1000 Mbps download, which is similar to speed in the UK who call it “full fibre broadband“. As a speed comparison, the fastest fibre network in the USA is Google with advertised fibre speeds up to 2,000 Mbps and a max tested speed of 1,858.7 Mbps. You typically won’t need fibre nearly as fast as that for normal home usage. South Africa’s mean download speed is around 20 Mpbs, and that allows you to download a 5GB movie in around 36 minutes. Fibre is actually surprisingly affordable. You can get a 25 Mbps line on OpenServe for R399.

What are the Benefits of Fibre?

Fibre provides a fast and reliable internet connection. Nowadays it’s also uncapped and unthrottled which means you can enjoy as much streaming and internet browsing as you like at any time of the time without a cap on the amount you can download or the speed at which you can download it. You can also connect multiple devices on a single connection so you don’t have to worry about members of the family or your partner slowing the line down. Equally beneficial for people working from home is the clear and uninterrupted connection that fibre offers.

What’s the difference between a fibre network and a fibre ISP?

Generally, there’s a separation between the network providers that provide fibre cable (the roads of fibre if you like) and the fibre internet service providers (ISPs) who get your data from point A to point B at a certain speed  (the cars in this analogy).

There are over 15 fibre networks in South Africa, so quite a few to choose from. That said, you are restricted by the networks available in your area and ISPs that package those deals so that they’re read-to-use. Prominent networks include Openserve, Octotel, Frogfoot, Vumatel, Zoom and Mistol. Others fibre networks include Lightstruck and Linklayer. Without adding too much confusion to the mix, you’ll find the very large well brands like Telkom who act as both a Network (laying the fibre cable) and an ISP (selling fibre packages to the end user). Prominent ISP fibre packages can be found from leading providers like WebAfrica, Afrihost, RSAWeb and Vox.
