In the largely digital-centric world in which we live, access to the internet has become more of a necessity than a want. In South Africa, the major mobile operators remain largely dominant in the roll-out of speedy internet services.
The roll-out of fibre technology has changed this significantly however.
More about Fibre To The Home
It’s the fastest-growing type of connectivity. The technology is replacing existing copper infrastructure. The technology is named after the fibre optic cables that use light impulses to carry data. The light bounces along the glass fibre tubes at the speed of light, making it very fast.
Another advantage offered by Fibre is that it’s theft and weather-proof. The fibre cable is laid from the street, to the inside of your home, where it’s connected to a router inside your home that broadcasts a Wi-Fi signal for your laptop, smartphones and tablets to connect to seamlessly,
Fibre technology is being rolled out across South Africa and C-Fibre from Cell C is a new Fibre To The Home Package that provides high performance fibre to the home.
