Re: Frustration with Fiber!

Starting to campaign my neighbours today... perhaps our collective voices will hold more weight.

 

Come on Telkom... don't leave Virgo Avenue (Sundowner) with its horrible 2mbs ADSL...

Re: Frustration with Fiber!

There seems to be confusion about how the fiber network is installed in neighbourhoods. There is the fiber provider and the ISP.  An analogy, is the provider is like the company that installs the water pipes to your home.

 

Then there is ANOTHER company (but can be the same company depending) that provides the water (Internet data signal) that runs in these pipes. This is the ISP.

 

Just because you have the infrastruture to your home, if an ISP doesn't deem your hood profitable enough, they won't provide the Internet to your home.
