How Is Fibre Installed On My Premises?

The installation of the fibre involves running a fibre cable from the manhole outside your property, or distribution box within a multi-dwelling unit (MDU), through your property to the inside of your home and connecting it to the internal device called an ONT (Optical Network Terminal).

The drawings below indicate the basic planning for bringing fibre into your apartment or house (fig.1) and your building (fig.2)

Choosing The Fibre Internet Package That Ticks All The Boxes

We are often asked the question by customers, “What internet package should I go for?”. So here’s a little guideline when considering which internet package best suits your needs.
1. Speed! This will be determined by how many users are in your home, how many devices connected simultaneously, and what content you are using the internet for.
Here’s a little table to guide you.
2. Budget! Although Promo’s are attractive, and in some cases can offer instant savings, if you are needing to budget for realistic future expenses, always read the T&Cs. Where some deals will offer you an instant saving over a short-term period, once the promo is up they may not necessarily be the most cost effective in the long run. Make sure you are aware of the standard retail price once the promo is up, and most importantly, that you have budgeted for that increase.
3. FREE!! Let’s be real, nothing in life is FREE! Again, always make sure you read the fine print and T&Cs when something is advertised for FREE. Majority of the time, FREE installations and FREE routers are offered on a month-to-month term, but most promo’s will include a “Claw back” clause, in the fine print, should you cancel your service within a certain period, the ISP will then bill what was originally FREE (Setup, Installation possibly a router). So realistically, that “month-to-month” service is actually a “contract” which is subject to a fixed term for you to qualify for the FREE stuff.

Cancel Your Obsolete Telkom Lines


Did you know that once your fibre has been installed you can then cancel ALL your Telkom services (ADSL + Analog Line Rental). You can keep your telephone number by porting it to your preferred ISP, this will save you having to continue paying Telkom a line rental. This service is commonly known as VoIP (voice over IP).

The VoIP call rates differ from ISP to ISP, so we recommend you request a rate structure from your preferred ISP. In our experience the ISP rates are really competitive and are typically 30% cheaper than Telkom.
If your next question is, “Can I use my existing analogue phone for VoIP services?”. The answer is unfortunately, NO. You will require a VoIP phone and your preferred ISP can assist you with a quotation.
