Vodacom announced on Wednesday that it has extended its Fibre-To-The-Home (FTTH) network through signing new lease agreements with third-party network infrastructure providers Link Africa, Octotel, Frogfoot and Waterfall Access Network (WAN).
The Vodafone-owned telco said its customers will now have access to its Fibre services through these providers, including Vodacom Fibre Broadband, Vodacom Fibre Fixed Voice and Value-Added Services.
“Vodacom continues to seek opportunities to enter into strategic agreements to sell our services through other network infrastructure providers,” Zunaid Mahomed, Group Digital and Fixed Services Officer at Vodacom says.
The South African biggest mobile phone operator 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).
Customers can view the pricing for the various FTTH networks on www.vodacom.co.za/fibre.
Furthermore, Vodacom has launched revised products and pricing on its self-build networks and introduced uncapped and symmetrical price plans. Vodacom said 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.
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.
