FROGFOOT Networks (Pty) Ltd, a licensed open access fibre infrastructure provider, has announced that the network is now live in Despatch and Uitenhage with over 7 000 homes now able to connect to the Frogfoot network.

The network rollout started at the beginning of the year in a phased approach and includes Azalea Park, Botharus, Heuwelkruin, Manor Heights, Retief and Windsor Park in Despatch. Scheepershoogte, Strelitziapark and Valleisig are live in Uitenhage with Janssensdal following in September.

A major advantage of living in an area covered by an open-access infrastructure provider like Frogfoot is that users get more choice: with over 60 ISPs to choose from, they get access to the best pricing and service to suit their needs.

This includes selecting line speeds, whether their package is capped or uncapped, and even if their line is symmetric (with bandwidth equally shared between uploads and downloads) or asymmetric (more bandwidth set aside for data traffic in one direction, usually downloads).

How fibre is changing the way SA uses the internet

Access to high speed internet is changing household consumption patterns in South Africa, with more people now watching video online, whether it is through their favourite YouTube channels, or from video-on-demand services such as Netflix or Showmax. It also has a lower latency than other types of connectivity, making it perfect for online gaming.

In addition, with lockdown restrictions still in effect, fibre is the ideal method of connectivity for remote workers who use cloud-based productivity tools and applications and need to be able to upload and download multiple files, or even for content creators, who have to upload large images and videos or use online editing tools.

“More often than not, people tend to underestimate their bandwidth requirements. Since Work from Home (WFH) became a reality, we have noticed that customers now consume up to 30% more data,” says Shane Chorley, Head of Sales at Frogfoot.

This tends to stem from additional time spent working from home, bringing the classroom home and staying connected with friends and family.
