Vumatel launches pre-paid fibre service in Soweto

Vumatel has launched its new Vuma Reach product in Soweto, offering pre-paid fibre to residents in the township.

The fibre packages are available on a pre-paid basis from Internet Service Providers (ISPs), with residents not being tied into a contract, giving them the freedom to buy services for data as and when they choose.

Vumatel said that these fibre services offered by the ISPs will give every home in the Vuma Fibre network:

  • 20/10Mbps uncapped internet connection;
  • FREE in-home fibre installation and Wi-Fi enabled device;
  • 24/7 availability and support;
  • No long contracts;
  • Pre-paid service.

The Vuma Reach package

This Vuma Reach fibre package is currently offered through two ISPs – Webafrica and Supersonic – and is priced at R399 per month.

The service offers download and upload speeds of 20Mbps and 10Mbps respectively with no fair usage policy.

This offering is summarised below:

  • Download Speed – 20Mbps
  • Upload Speed – 10Mbps
  • Price per month – R399

Vuma Reach customers will also get the following, according to Webafrica’s website:

  • Free installation worth R999
  • Free Phone Calls – 30 min/month
  • Free Router

The 30 minutes of free phone calls every month are a VoIP service offered by Webafrica and are bundled with its Vuma Reach fibre package.

Webafrica stated that its package is purchased on a month-to-month basis, which means there are no cancellation penalties or credit checks.
