Frogfoot brings fibre to over 100 000 homes across South Africa

Frogfoot has been rolling out fibre infrastructure across South Africa at a rapid pace as the fibre installation company continues their mission to provide lightning fast coverage to secondary towns.

Head of Sales, Shane Chorley, ?While we are looking primarily at the consumer market, there are opportunities to target certain types of smaller businesses that are based in and around the residential areas.?

Chorley said that users from smaller towns are ?data-starved?, and fibre connectivity will change how they access the Internet. ?It might take a while, but as people become exposed to the possibilities of quality high-speed Internet, they consume far more data than before.?

Fibre is up to 250 times faster than today?s basic DSL broadband and packages range from 10Mbps to 1 Gbps.  

With a far more reliable connection underground, fibre offers a symmetrical speed with low latency. This means you can stay connected with family and loved ones on Skype with a crystal clear visual, making it feel like they are right there in the room with you.

Fibre also allows you to cut phone call costs in half by using VoIP or Voice over IP technology. This applies to both local and international calls and is a fraction of the current cost.

Keep your premises safe with CCTV cameras powered by fibre for a stable and continuous internet connection.

Do you work from home or require a fast internet connection for you and your family to access the internet at the same time? Fibre allows your children to keep up with their assignments by accessing to top resources and e-learning platforms. 

​And, of course, the most popular reason to get fibre would be the ability to rapidly download or steam high definition TV shows, movies, music and online games with no interruptions or buffering whatsoever.

Frogfoot has over 60 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and is a staunch supporter of local ISPs in each area that fibre is laid. In 2019, over 2 351 192 metres were trenched with over 100 000 homes passed in just 12 months.

Schools in these areas have benefitted from Frogfoot?s School Promotion Campaign which provides a free FTTH connection up to 1Gbps. Schools who fall within an area with Frogfoot coverage can apply for a fibre link by contacting their chosen ISP.

Work is currently underway in suburbs of Nelspruit, Polokwane, Pretoria, Richards Bay, Bloemfontein and Pietermaritzburg to name a few with some neighbourhoods already enjoying high speed fibre.
