High Speed Fibre Internet for Home or Home Businesses.
About High Speed Fibre Internet
Fibre optic internet makes use of a multi-thread glass or plastic fibre cable as opposed to outdated, standard copper cables used in regular telephone & internet connectivity.
Fibre optic cables are buried underground & over the last 20 years in South Africa, have been (re)placed between major telephone exchanges & the telecommunication cabinets seen on pavements in all major suburbs.
Apart from the increased capacity & performance of fibre optic, which in some cases is 2-300 times faster & more stable than DSL, fibre offers a wide range of other benefits to both the providers using it & ultimately the end user. With copper cable theft & downtime amounting to multi-million Rands in losses annually, fibre cable has almost no resale value & isn’t affected as much, or as often by lightning. Currently, fibre is faster & more reliable than any other, fixed consumer-based telco solution.
A host of Service providers, such as Neotel, Openserve (Telkom), Infraco, IS, Teraco, Cell C, Vodacom & MTN (among others) control access to the main core network, they own their own on-land networks & in some cases the undersea cables that connect South Africa to the rest of the world.

What consumers who own businesses & homes are now seeing, are a great number of last mile fibre providers such as Vumatel, Dark Fibre Africa & Bitco, who carry fibre from the core network to suburb streets. Many of the core service providers overlap with these last mile providers offering comsumer & business-based fibre internet services.
Making use of last mile providers are ISPs (Internet Service Providers) such as Voice & Data, who have partnered with most of the core & last mile companies to provide a host of services & products to ensure your internet & online activities fit & work seamlessly through all networks. Here again, some core & last mile providers also serve & overlap as ISPs.
While price is still a deciding factor in many cases for the end user, it’s important to note what value an ISP can provide for you though it’s technical automation & management of your services and, what other functionality it offers apart from just an internet connection.
For example, as a small home based business one may require VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services for making telephone calls, extra phone lines as the business grows, PBX (switchboard) functions, network security to protect data, offsite (Cloud) backups, online usage monitoring, mobile calling for sales people off site etc.
But what does this mean for a home who just wants good, reliable connectivity – & what can one do with a fibre internet connection?
