Fibre-to-the-shack — uncapped 100Mbps for R5 a day

Isizwe — the company behind the Kyamandi Fibre Project — has released the latest results of its initial proof of concept fibre-to-the-shack project and highlighted several challenges it had to address to be successful.

The company has connected 891 homes with fibre, and users on the network have consumed more than 490TB of data since its launch in November 2022.

“The Kayamandi Fibre Project has achieved a significant objective by providing 891 households in Kayamandi with affordable and uncapped fibre internet, offering high-speed connectivity of over 100mbps for a minimal fee of R5 per day,” it said.

It was interesting to note that Isizwe’s new figure of 891 homes connected is significantly lower than the 4,500 it reported in December 2022.
