Are you eager to bring the power of Vuma Fibre to your neighbourhood?

By providing your address, and contact details, and ensuring your information is accurate, you’ll be one step closer to enjoying the benefits of a fibre-connected future.
Becoming a Vuma Fibrehood
The world we live in is becoming increasingly connected. Vumatel embraces this not only by connecting with fibre but by encouraging communities to do so. Fibre is certainly changing the way we live, work, and play, and a fast, reliable internet connection is no longer a luxury but a necessity. Vuma Fibre is leading the way in providing communities with ultra-fast fibre internet services that are revolutionising our online experience.
Not everyone is connected yet, and to do so requires some effort. This guide will get you started. If you’re interested in bringing the power of Vuma Fibre to your neighbourhood, read on to learn about the four simple steps that can turn your area into the next Vuma Fibrehood.
Step 1: Register Your Interest on Vuma’s website
If you’re interested in turning your neighbourhood into a Vuma Fibrehood, follow these steps to show your interest:
Ensure that you have the correct address where fibre is not yet available. In this case, your address is in Cape Town, South Africa.
Provide your specific street number and street name. This information helps Vuma Fibre understand the demand for their services in your area.
Fill in your personal details to demonstrate your interest. Don’t worry, Vuma Fibre respects your privacy and will not share this information with any third parties. They will only use it to contact you regarding your fibre journey. Provide the following details:
By providing this information, you’ll be expressing your interest in becoming a Vuma Fibrehood, and Vuma Fibre will contact you with further details on how to proceed with the process.
Step 2: Get Involved – Learn More About Fibre
The first step to bringing Vuma Fibre to your area is to get involved and educate yourself about the benefits of fibre-optic internet. Vuma provides an information pack that outlines the advantages of becoming a fibrehood, which you can use to distribute to residents in your community. To help us better understand your neighbourhood, you’ll also need to supply a map showing your suburb’s boundaries, the estimated number of households to be covered, and the percentage of residents signed up to the residents association.
Once you’ve familiarised yourself with the benefits of fibre and have the necessary information, schedule a meeting with Vuma representatives to answer any questions you might have and endorse the idea of turning your suburb into a fibrehood. This is a crucial step in ensuring that your community understands the value of embracing this cutting-edge technology.
Step 3: Qualify Your Suburb – Drive Awareness within Your Community
After you’ve learned about the benefits of fibre and endorsed Vuma’s initiative, the next step is to drive awareness within your community. Vuma provides a toolkit that contains templates, brochures, and social media materials to help you spread the word about fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology. By sharing this information, your community will gain a better understanding of the benefits, costs, timelines, and implementation plans associated with FTTH.
To further engage your community, Vuma representatives will present at a town hall meeting, answering questions and addressing any concerns directly from residents. After this presentation, your suburb will be activated on an online portal where residents can express their interest in the project by completing a short survey. You’ll play an essential role in driving people to the portal and ensuring the expression of interest target level is reached, at which point Vuma will begin rolling out the network.
Step 4: Construct – Network Roll-Out and Resident Sign-Ups
Once your community has demonstrated sufficient interest in the project, Vuma will publish a roll-out schedule and begin the civil construction process. This involves laying fibre-optic cables and bringing them to the boundary of every property in your area. As construction progresses, Vuma will offer services and promotional deals online, allowing residents to sign up with their preferred service providers.
Throughout the construction phase, Vuma will maintain regular communication with residents, ensuring that everyone stays informed and updated on the project’s progress. Your role in this step is to encourage your neighbours to sign up for services and stay engaged with the project.
Step 4: Connect – Enjoy the Benefits of Fibre
After construction is complete and residents have signed up for services, Vuma will arrange a time to install the fibre from the boundary into their homes. This in-home installation process typically takes 4-8 hours to complete. Once finished, residents can immediately activate their service online and start enjoying the benefits of high-speed, open-access fibre internet. With Vuma Fibre, your community can surf the internet, download movies, make VoIP calls, and so much more with incredible speed and reliability
