Keikantseng Mothibe: I think it is very thoughtful of them to do this. It is about time we get to the same level as other suburbs.
Following an article in Alex News about fibre-to-the-home provider Vumatel’s plans to include Alexandra as the first township in the country to have 100 Mbit/s fibre for R89 per month, we asked residents of the township what they thought about it and if they would sign up for it.
Tshwaro Mogwera: Does this mean we can go on social media for just R89 a month? That's perfect, data is expensive. Now we won't have to buy 100 megabytes for R30. Tebogo Ramahlo: It is going to save us time and money of going to the Internet café every time we want to look for jobs or search for information. Tshepiso Williams: Data is expensive and young people need access to the Internet in order to do their schoolwork. The only question I have is will it be regulated because these young ones might visit bad sites? Martha Moleya: I think it is agreat idea because we can look for jobs from our homes. Plus the price is very affordable.
