Vumatel cuts prices

Tuesday 22 June 2021 | 11:20 CET | News
South African fibre network operator Vumatel has adjusted its fibre-to-the-home product line-up, resulting in big price cuts from ISPs on its network, Mybroadband reported. Vumatel told MyBroadband it had reviewed and adjusted a number of products to simplify its product offerings, in line with ISP feedback. However, it said it was not legally at liberty to discuss pricing in the open market, as ISPs were responsible for communicating retail price points to the market.
