Fibre is rolling out across South Africa. Check to see if your area has Fibre already.
Products available depend on who the infrastructure provider in your area is. MWEB works across providers and offers a range of products.
Keep in mind that you need to check your area for Fibre availability.
Fibre is the newest, fastest and most exciting connectivity type out there. But there are a lot of names being thrown around. So what’s what?
Fibre has an abundance of product choices, which can be intimidating. However, with all these choices, you can make sure that you find the perfect product to suit your needs. You also have a choice as to who supplies your connectivity infrastructure, meaning that you are not limited to only Telkom lines as you are with ADSL.
There are two players – the infrastructure provider and the data product provider.
There are a number of infrastructure providers, both big and small, who lay the fibre optic cables – unlike copper cables, which are only laid by Telkom. These infrastructure providers lay the fibre cable from the street to the inside of your home, where it is then connected to a router inside your home that broadcasts a WiFi signal for your laptop, smartphones and tablets to connect to.
Data Product Providers
MWEB is one of the companies that offer data products on top of this infrastructure. As a time saver and value add, MWEB does all the arranging and planning on a customer's behalf, which means there is the added convenience of talking to only one company to arrange your installation.
How can MWEB help me get Fibre installed?
Each area with Fibre has a different mix of infrastructure providers, product options and costs (including installation, connection and data fees).
MWEB acts as an aggregator of a number of infrastructure providers in the area and can offer a range of options to ensure that you get the product that best meets your needs. You have choices and MWEB helps you make the best one for your needs.

Fibre is continuously being rolled out across the country. MWEB doesn't determine which areas are chosen, but works closely with infrastructure providers to bring customers the best connectivity experience.
The best place to check roll-out across all areas and infrastructure providers is www.mweb.co.za/fibre
The roll-out is speeding up every month and new areas are continually being added, so don't give up hope – your area might be next. If your area is not yet live, we recommend getting your community together, through your resident's association and approach one of the infrastructure providers to install Fibre in your area.
Fibre optic cables use light impulses to speed the information along the Fibre connection. That's why Fibre
is so fast and can carry large amounts of data quickly.
Fast speeds and reliable connectivity means that you can live-stream your favourite shows and movies as if
you are watching live TV.
With Fibre you don't need to have a landline that you don’t use and don’t want to pay for. You can make VoIP
calls and can even retain your existing number.
With Fibre you'll be able to fully connect your home to the Internet, including your security, smart TVs
and gaming units, work at home and connect multiple devices at the same time.
