Exciting times are ahead for Internet service providers as XDSL offers broadband fibre-optic offerings with speeds of 25 megabits per second (Mbps), 50Mbps and 100Mbps available – more than 10Mbps faster than existing options. XDSL is meeting customer demand for more capacity and more speed to keep up with ever evolving technology in an always on, always connected business environment.

“As more and more applications and services move into the cloud, and the volumes of data that need to be uploaded and downloaded increase, the demand for data capacity and speed is continuing to grow," explains Danie Fourie, director at XDSL.

"Hosted services, too, are gaining traction – another area that relies on stable, high-speed connectivity.

"XDSL is meeting this demand head-on with a range of affordable, super-fast, stable broadband fibre offerings that allow for high-speed upload and download to enable organisations to take full advantage of both cloud and hosted offerings,” he adds.

“Broadband fibre offers real-time, synchronous and low latency connectivity – ideal for IP services including VoIP, hosted PBX and a range of other technologies.

"By offering speeds of between 25Mbps and 100Mbps, we are opening up the market to a range of solutions and services.

"By utilising fibre-optic cable rather than copper, our broadband fibre offering also ensures that cable theft, signal deterioration and latency issues are no longer a problem, and that connectivity can be established at greater distances from the exchange,” says Fourie.

XDSL’s high-speed broadband fibre offering will be delivered as a contended service in order to ensure maximum capacity utilisation and optimised cost.

XDSL guarantees a maximum of 10-to-one contention ratio, with minimum levels of 70% of advertised speeds at all times. With these contention rates, however, users can expect an average of up to 90% effective speeds. 

Pricing on the solutions varies depending on the broadband speed required, the availability of last-mile connectivity, as well as the operator fibre in use for the last mile.

Metro fibre pricing excluding VAT:

·         25Mbps – R15 500 per month

·         50Mbps – R27 250 per month


Metro ethernet pricing excluding VAT:

·         25Mbps – R21 950 per month

·         50Mbps – R37 150 per month

·         100Mbps – R64 370 per month


“Our high-speed broadband offering is ideal for any business with high data traffic and capacity requirements, from large corporates to smaller and medium enterprises. The reality is that demand for traffic continues to grow and we are catering to this demand with our new offering," says Fourie.

"We will also still be offering 15Mbps and lower broadband to cater to the needs of a less bandwidth-intensive market,” he adds. 

XDSL’s 25Mbps, 50Mbps and 100Mbps broadband offerings are available immediately.
