Vodacom unveils home fibre expansion plans and new prices

Vodacom has extended its Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) network and has introduced new packages and price adjustments on its current wholesale FTTH networks.

The company has signed new lease agreements with third-party network infrastructure providers Link Africa, Octotel, Frogfoot and Waterfall Access Network (WAN).

The mobile operator said its customers will have access to Vodacom Fibre services through these providers, including Vodacom Fibre Broadband, Vodacom Fibre Fixed Voice and Value-Added Services.

The company has also announced new packages and price adjustments on its current wholesale FTTH networks including Vumatel, Openserve, Fibrehoods, Century City, Metro Fibre Network, SA Digital Villages and Dark Fibre Africa Parkview (DFA).

Zunaid Mahomed, group digital and fixed services officer at Vodacom said: “Vodacom continues to seek opportunities to enter into strategic agreements to sell our services through other network infrastructure providers.”

Customers can view the pricing for the various FTTH networks here.

Vodacom has also launched revised products and pricing on its self-build networks and introduced uncapped and symmetrical price plans.

“Through these services, customers will be able to use as much data as they want at all times without worrying about running out of data or topping up. Customers on self-built networks can now receive the benefit of purchasing symmetrical price plans that allow for the same upload and download speeds,” Vodacom said in a press statement on Wednesday.

The uncapped price plans have been introduced in addition to the existing capped price plans on offer. Both the uncapped and capped offerings are available as month to month, 12 month or 24 month options, the operator said.
