Vodacom has finally announced uncapped plans for fibre-to-the-home broadband across a range of infrastructure providers where it acts as an Internet service provider.
The uncapped price plans have been introduced in addition to the existing capped price plans on offer, the company said.
Both the uncapped and capped offerings are available as month-to-month, 12-month or 24-month options (see table below).
Capped customers will have the option to top up with new Vodacom fibre top-up bundles when their monthly data allocation is depleted.
Vodacom has also signed wholesale agreements with another two third-party network infrastructure providers — SADV and Metrofibre Networx.
In September, Vodacom announced that it had signed lease agreements with Fibrehoods, Openserve, Century City Connect, Vumatel and Dark Fibre Africa to deliver Vodacom-branded fibre products.
Through these providers, Vodacom customers have access to fibre broadband, fixed voice and value-added services, it said.
“The roll-out of fibre remains a critical part of Vodacom’s growth strategy and our intention remains to pass a million broadband fibre end-points within the next four years,” said Vodacom fibre managing executive Louisa van Beek in a statement.
Vodacom now passes over 31 000 homes and businesses with its own fibre infrastructure. The company said recently that it is exploring new ways to expand in the fibre space and will invite partners to enter into co-build agreements. — (c) 2016 NewsCentral Media
