FTTH Clarity please and no guessing please.

+2 votes

I have asked this question before and see many others are also battling to get some clarity.


Sadly I am only getting answers of people guessing about what is happening or going to happen.


So please no "guessing" or unclear repliies, PLEASE.


I know this a user forum but perhaps someone from within Afrihost can provide an answer.

What is the official strategy of Afrihost in respect to FTTH and is there some dates or milestones?

Kind regards

Hi Chilliejantjie

Officially, Afrihost has not announced any dates to launch.

But, Afrihost is definitely going to launch FTTH hopefully within this year.

It is the next big project for Afrihost, if your area can get FTTH, Afrihost will be able to provide the data and in most cases manage the line for you.

I hope this helps, have a great day!

Hi Bicycleboy

Thank you for the answer but I asked for no guessing please.

I support a few people and have advised them the join Afrihost a few years ago and they are all very happy with the service. But right now they are in the fortunate position to have Telkom FTTH available on their sidewalk ready to connect and asking my help once more.

I cannot keep feeding these people "hopefully" or "maybe this year" anymore, like I have been doing for a few months now.

They are prepare to wait if it is a couple months but are going to very annoyed with me if this only happens at the end of the year and I kept them from moving now.

So I ask PLEASE, only provide a factual answer or if you can assist by getting this to Gian or one of his Exco members, to provide something more concrete.

Kind regards
