MWeb has cut the price of fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband in areas where last-mile fibre specialist Vumatel provides infrastructure.
The Internet service provider said on Tuesday that it is also increasing data cap sizes at the same time as cutting prices.
Details about the cap changes and new prices are contained in the table below:
Meanwhile, MWeb head of products Rihana Hoosain said the company is also launching partnerships with Frogfoot Networks (recently acquired by Vox Telecom) and Fibrehoods in a number of areas, including Constantia, Parkview, Craighall and Century City. New products will be launched for these companies’ networks in the “coming weeks”, Hoosain said.
Hoosain said that MWeb is seeing a “marked increase” in the number of people converting to and interested in FTTH as general awareness about the availability of fibre grows in the South African market.
“We have seen a 10% increase in page views of fibre-related pages on our website from May to October and over 80 000 page views on www.mweb.co.za/fibre in the same period,” said Hoosain. — (c) 2015 NewsCentral Media
