Cheapest fibre prices ever in South Africa

Recent speed upgrades and price cuts by Openserve have sparked a fibre price war which has seen uncapped prices drop to below R400 per month.

Openserve recently announced free fibre speed upgrades for wholesale customers, as well as price cuts across a number of products.

Internet service providers (ISPs) were quick to pass these benefits to consumers, with aggressively priced uncapped fibre products.

Afrihost announced on 9 February that all its fibre clients who use Openserve infrastructure are getting free line speed upgrades in March.

Afrihost CEO Gian Visser said the bill for their 200Mbps fibre clients, who cannot get higher speeds, will automatically be adjusted and they will save R380 per month from March.

Mweb followed suit two weeks later and as part of its speed upgrades launched a new symmetrical 25Mbps uncapped fibre service for R499 per month.

Not to be outdone, Telkom launched a new 25/5Mbps unlimited service for R399 per month. It also unveiled a symmetrical 25Mbps product at R449 per month.

Webafrica struck next and launched a 25/10Mbps service for R399 per month. It also cut the price of its 200Mbps service to R899 per month.

It should be noted that Webafrica’s promotional pricing is only valid until the end of the year.

These are the best fibre-to-the-home prices South Africa has ever seen. It is particularly great news for households that increasingly rely on Internet access for work and entertainment.
