Will the fibre have power during the load shedding period?

I would like to know if the fibre will still be working during 2 1/2 hours of loadshedding in cape town, as we need to make sure that our telephone system is up and running during this time

Hi there


When load-shedding occurs, thousands of Fibre clients lose your connection

Another solution might be a small UPS device. A 1000VA can easily power your CPE device and your WiFi router for the standard 4-hour load-shedding period. You should also be able to charge your mobile device to stay connected

This will allow you to stay connected during load-shedding, as well as avoiding the rush to re-connect when the power comes back on.
