Multiple screens, sport, Netflix, the news, another 8PM address from President Ramaphosa, and endless scrolling through social media while we’re stuck indoors.
It’s adjusted alert level 4, it’s lockdown, and it’s the absolute necessity of a high-speed fibre connection to help stay sane.
If you’re in the market for a home fibre provider, or you’re thinking about switching, MyBroadband has done the legwork and compared prices from South Africa’s main internet service providers (ISPs).
They’ve also broken it down in speeds ranging from 10Mbps right through to 1Gbps, which seems over the top, but you do you.
For the average household (even those making use of multiple devices at the same), 10Mbps and 20Mbps should suffice.
This table via the MyBroadband comparison:
RSAWEB features in the top three in both of those speeds, as well as the 35Mbps, 50Mbps, and 100Mbps brackets.
Prices in the 200Mbps speed bracket start from R895 a month, and a 1Gbps speed will set you back at least R1 150.
With both of those, you can probably forgive that neighbour who ‘just wants to hop onto your WiFi’ because theirs has dropped, and then never disconnects, because you won’t even notice their use.
RSAWEB is also running a number of great fibre promotions, which include free setup, a free router, and other perks:
Load shedding – enough to send shivers down the spine.
We don’t know when, but we know it will be back.
All you can do is laugh.
