Most of us can get by with a solid 20Mbps to 30Mbps home fibre connection.
That usually allows for a few people to browse and stream online at the same time. without the dreaded spinning wheel of death.
Fine, that’s a little dramatic. Let’s call it buffering.
For those who need a super-fast connection at home, perhaps for transferring large files, or at the office, you start looking at what you’ll be paying for speeds of around 100Mbps.
Thankfully, MyBroadband has done a price comparison across eight of South Africa’s premier Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and four major fibre network operators.
They found that RSAWeb and Mweb offer the cheapest uncapped 100Mbps prices. Here’s their comparison of Openserve prices:
That little asterisk is worth a closer look so let’s swing past RSAWEB and take a look at the promotion running until May 31.
If Openserve fibre is available in your area, you’re getting your first month at R795 as well as a host of other savings.
In addition, if you sign up for RSAWEB Fibre during the month of May, you will automatically be entered into a draw to win an Apple MacBook Air 13-inch with an Apple M1 chip, 7-core GPU, and 256GB SSD.
You can check which fibre network operator is available in your area here.
If Vumatel is available in your area, RSAWEB’s 100Mbps option is the cheapest at R995 a month with Mweb in second.
The same is true with Metrofibre, and Frogfoot also has those two ISPs leading the way.
Some food for thought as we head into the winter months and a hardcore period of Netflix and chill.
