Looking at Coverage: Fibre and LTE?

03 April 2020

Internet coverage matters in South Africa remain a persistent problem in 2020. While we do not have an unlimited amount of choices; it pays to know what your options are and how to tap into those possibilities.

"So, where do I start?"

If you’re thinking of purchasing a long-term internet connection and have no idea where to start, your safest bet is online; to check your coverage and to do some research. While you may think your choices are limitless, you might be surprised, based on the area you live in. So, before you opt for providers and start looking at fibre network operators, we suggest you hop onto a coverage map.  A coverage map will determine best, what internet connection options you have before subscribing to a package. You will be able to check your package options on the chosen connection to determine a suitable choice for your household; considering price, internet allowance and flexibility.  

“Why is coverage so important?”

Coverage remains a “touchy” topic in South Africa. Many areas are not fitted with the correct infrastructure yet to achieve the connections we want. Whether it is fibre cable that has not been laid or being too far from an LTE tower, these issues affect your coverage.  

The good news is that our country is moving towards these options in order to provide safe and uncomplicated internet connections to us.
