    Default MWEB fibre price increase

    I received an email from MWEB on July 31st, indicating:

    "Due to rising operational costs, we're increasing the cost of your connectivity products"

    so my fibre package is up by R20 now.
    As they do not provide specifics about this increase, anyone has an idea about these charges?

    I have mostly moved to Gmail, I have a few left on MWeb. I will need to make a plan during the month and end this nonsense.

    From R1149 for my 300gb 100mb fiber to R1179 for my 300gb 100mb fiber. Although I now have uncapped night time data. Log in to your account page. It also shows you your daily data usage.

    Hi Starbound,
    I agree the uncapped night data is a big plus, but is was provided I think two months ago for free.
    Maybe they decided to start charging for this now.

    Was with telkom fibre

    100Mbps 400GB for R1499, they changed it to R1613

    Moved to WebAfrica

    200Mbps 600GB + 1000GB Night Time for R1640

    Overall all the fibre packages has increased.

    It's not too big of a deal. The fact is a telkom line rental sets you back around R720 if not more for 4mb adsl and then you still need a data provider. Axxess gives uncapped 4mb for R325 or something so you pay R1050 when all is said and done. Paying R150 more so I dont have to wait too long on things, so I can stream movies while waiting, etc is not too bad.

    However I would like to see some 200mb options... maybe even up to 450mb.
