Information About Openserve

We’ve put together a few considerations if you’re looking at purchasing Openserve fibre.

How Do I Access Openserve fibre?

To access Openserve fibre, a fibre-optic cable must be installed from the nearest fibre distribution point to your premises. The fibre cable is then connected to a fibre modem, which translates the fibre signal into a form that can be used by a computer or other device. From there, the signal can be transmitted wirelessly or through Ethernet cables to devices within the home or business.

Openserve fibre is available in select areas of South Africa. To check if it is available in your area, visit the company’s website and enter your address in the “check availability” tool, or you can call the company’s customer service centre.

How does Openserve fibre compare to other types of internet connectivity?

Openserve fibre offers several advantages compared to other types of internet connectivity. Some of the benefits of Openserve fibre include:

Fast speeds: Openserve fibre offers some of the fastest internet speeds available, with plans ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps. This makes it ideal for heavy internet users such as gamers, streamers, and those who need to transfer large files frequently.

Reliability: Fiber-optic cables are less prone to interference and degradation than other types of cables, which means that Openserve fibre tends to be more reliable than other types of internet connectivity.

Unlimited data: Many Openserve fibre plans offer unlimited data, so you don’t have to worry about running out of data or being charged extra for exceeding a data cap.

Future-proof: As internet usage and demand continue to increase, fibre-optic technology has the capacity to scale to meet these needs. This makes Openserve fibre a good choice for those who want a long-term internet solution that can grow with their needs.

That being said, Openserve fibre may not be available in all areas, and it tends to be more expensive than other types of internet connectivity such as ADSL or VDSL. It may also require the installation of fibre-optic cables, which can be a time-consuming and costly process.

Is Openserve fibre available in all areas of South Africa?
Openserve fibre is not available in all areas of South Africa. It is primarily available in urban and suburban areas, and its availability may vary depending on the specific location.

To check if Openserve fibre is available in your area, you can visit the company’s website and enter your address in the “check availability” tool, or you can call the company’s customer service center. If Openserve fibre is not currently available in your area, you may be able to request that the company consider installing fiber-optic cables in your area. However, there is no guarantee that this will be possible, and it may take some time for the service to become available if it is approved.

In areas where Openserve fibre is not available, you may be able to access other types of internet connectivity such as ADSL. ADSL uses traditional copper telephone lines to transmit data and tend to be slower and less reliable than fiber-optic cables, but they may be more widely available in certain areas.

How do I sign up for Openserve fibre services?

To sign up for Openserve fibre services, you can follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Openserve website and click on the “Broadband” tab.

  8. Once the fibre-optic cable has been installed, you will receive your fibre modem and any other necessary equipment. Follow the instructions provided to set up your service.

You can also sign up for Openserve fibre services by visiting a retail store or by calling the company’s customer service centre.

Is Openserve owned by Telkom?

The company is a subsidiary of the Telkom Group and is known for having the largest fixed broadband network in South Africa. Openserve is committed to staying ahead of the curve and providing its partners with the competitive edge they need to succeed in their service offerings.

Is Openserve fibre lines protected against load shedding?

Openserve Fibre’s network is designed to be resilient against power outages and electrical surges, which means that your connection can continue during load shedding if the Fibre devices on your premises are powered up. The company has taken a number of steps to ensure that its customers remain connected during escalating load-shedding across the country. Openserve has a significant number of standby generators to keep the network active during power outages and is also exploring greener energy solutions. They have also established an Emergency Management Team and have implemented real-time monitoring to ensure higher network resilience. For more information, you can visit their page on Factors that impact network connectivity.

How does Openserve differ from an ISP like WebAfrica?

Openserve and WebAfrica are two different types of companies that operate in the telecommunications industry. Openserve is a telecommunications infrastructure provider, which means that it builds and maintains the physical infrastructure (such as fibre optic cables and telephone lines) that is used to provide telecommunications services. On the other hand, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) like WebAfrica provides access to the internet and other related services to its customers.

In other words, Openserve is responsible for building and maintaining the “pipes” that carry internet and other telecommunications traffic, while an ISP like WebAfrica is responsible for providing the actual service (in this case, internet access) to its customers. ISPs rely on the infrastructure provided by companies like Openserve to deliver their services to customers.

Why can't you contact Openserve directly about fibre?

If there are issues with the network or infrastructure, your ISP will contact Openserve on your behalf and we will send a team of skilled technicians to diagnose and fix the problem. Since Openserve is a wholesale infrastructure provider to your ISP and does not have a direct relationship with you as a customer, the most efficient way to resolve issues is to contact your ISP, who will provide us with the necessary information.

What is the difference between Openserve Fibre Connect, Copper Connect (ADSL) and Pure Connect?

Openserve offers three broadband services: Fibre Connect, Copper Connect, and Pure Connect. Fibre Connect is a fibre broadband service that can be ordered from any internet service provider (ISP). Copper Connect is a broadband service delivered over a copper network and requires a voice line from Telkom. Pure Connect is a broadband service that is not associated with a voice service and can be ordered directly from any ISP, although an IP voice service may still be available.
