The days of ADSL internet connections might truly be coming to an end as mobile network operator Cell C has also entered into the home fibre broadband space.

The company partnered with Vumatel for the C-Fibre service, “to bring competitive uncapped Fibre offerings to customers in the Vumatel footprint” from today.

If you want to be connected to Cell C’s service but don’t live in a Vumatel area, don’t worry as the company said that it is in discussions with other companies to make its offers available.

“In a world where content and technology are converging, customers are going to need high-speed and unrestricted access that will allow them to keep pace with their content consumption,” said Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos in a media statement.

In terms of pricing, C-Fibre 20 Mbps is R899 per month; C-Fibre 50Mbps is R1 149 per month; and C-Fibre 100Mbps is R1 499 per month.

Since it is fibre, all three connection packages offer unlimited, unrestricted symmetrical data – that means that it is uncapped and unshaped at all times.

All offerings include free installation valued at R1 710, free connection worth R999 and a free Wi-Fi router with LTE fail-over worth R1799, subject to T&Cs.

“We are focussed on providing the best possible experience to our customers and will be developing our broadband strategy to ensure that customers receive the quality and value they have come to expect from Cell C,” added Dos Santos.
