South Africa's SmartVillage unveils broadband packages

Tuesday 4 September 2012 | 10:43 CET | News

South African multi-play service provider SmartVillage has unveiled a new broadband portfolio and data packages, which include 20 Mbps broadband access and more affordable data packages, MyBroadband reported. From 01 September, it will offer broadband at 1 Mbps, 4 Mbps, 8 Mbps, 10 Mbps and 20 Mbps broadband in some residential estates.

The 20 Mbps service is offered over fibre to ensure that there are no last mile bottlenecks and will initially only be available in Gauteng (Midrand Estates and Waterfall City), but will be extended to Kwazulu-Natal and Cape Town once SmartVillage's backhaul infrastructure has been upgraded. These infrastructure projects are expected to be completed by the end of 2012.

SmartVillage has also reduced the price of its capped data packages to as low as ZAR 7 per 1 GB for its 50 GB service. Subscribers have the option of purchasing a broadband line and data separately (similar to ADSL), or purchase a bundled broadband service and uncapped data. SmartVillage offers 1 Mbps, 4 Mbps, 8 Mbps and 10 Mbps uncapped broadband combos, priced between ZAR 339 and ZAR 1,359 per month.
