Octotel, a Cape Town based Open Access fibre provider, is in the last stages of completing its network roll-out from Sea Point to Three Anchor Bay and will be expanding to Mouille Point and Bantry Bay in the next two months.

“Our focus is on connecting apartment buildings, with a target of 15,000 homes in the Sea Point area this year. We’re seen exceptional demand for fibre services along the Atlantic Seaboard and orders are rolling in through our five ISP partners,” says Joe Botha, CTO of Octotel.

Pricing and Coverage Map

There are currently five ISPs offering services on the Octotel network: Web Africa, Cool Ideas, RSAWEB, Vanilla and PC Network. Octotel offers four line speed options: 10Mbps, 20Mbps, 100Mbps and 1Gbps. Most of the packages have a month-to-month contract option and there is a R1,710 installation fee.

“Pricing starts at R429/m for a 10Mbps capped service, with a 100Mbps uncapped service at R999/m being one of the most popular products on the network,” says Botha.
