Herotel is proud to announce it is building a world-class fibre internet network in Caledon after receiving wayleaves (a right of way granted by a landowner, generally in exchange for payment and typically for purposes such as the erection of telegraph wires or laying of cables) from the local municipality. Once complete, residents and businesses will enjoy lightning speeds of up to 100 Mbps at the most affordable prices in South Africa. Residents will pay only R499 for 10Mbps True Uncapped Package, up to 33% more affordable than other fibre networks.
Coert Smit, General Manager of Herotel Breedenet, says: ‘’We’re proud of the fact that, once complete, our network will be able to offer you the lowest prices for true uncapped fibre in Caledon. Don’t believe me? Give us a call, or drop us an email - we‘ll happily show you that nobody can offer the same quality connection for the same prices. My team and I pride ourselves on straight talking, no jargon, no excuses service. We’re not here to confuse you. We’re here to bring you the simple, affordable, world-class connection you deserve.
‘’It’s important to us to bring real local service to Caledon, which is why we are planning to open a local office, supported by our neighbouring branch in Worcester. Both of these branches are staffed and run by locals. People who know, live in and understand your community. People who are here to stay and grow our business in Caledon. People who want to make sure that local stays lekker, always.”
Herotel has opted to construct a fibre network that is strung mostly along poles in the mid-block between homes, which is the preferred method of large telecommunications companies like Verizon in the United States and British Telecoms in the UK.
“I want to stress that we never plant poles without the homeowner’s permission, and in most cases not in front of homes unless to cross a road or if there is no space at the back of a property. In most cases we plant a single pole in the municipal servitude between you and your neighbours in a corner that we agree with you, which in most cases will not be visible from the street. It is a quick and neat solution. No digging, no mess. The cables are identical to the ones other companies bury by digging up your pavements, driveways and flower beds.”
Smit adds: “Our network is designed to work brilliantly in all weather conditions and has a thirty-year guarantee. We will personally maintain it from our offices right here in Caledon. Our cables are strong enough to withstand trees falling on the lines (we’ve seen it happen!) and, if something does go wrong, they are easy to repair. You’ll be back online before you can say: ‘Waar de ….’
“We’ll also continue using local labour for the next phases of our network expansion. It’s important to me that we do things the right way - imported contractors don’t care for this place like our team does. Community means a lot to me. I believe in the families who call this incredible place home and I want to connect all of them to super fast, affordable internet. This is our community and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
“Uniformed Herotel team members, will be approaching residents of Caledon to plant poles within the servitude on their property boundary line. “In gratitude for allowing us to plant a pole on their property, we will be offering a limited special promotion where we will double your line speed for the first year of service. Terms & Conditions Apply.
“The Caledon fibre network represents a technological investment into the local community which will improve access to education, entertainment and open new business opportunities. As a further bonus to homeowners, it has been proven that access to fibre increases the value of properties over time.”
