Cell C’s commercial offerings of its Fibre-to-the-Home service, C-Fibre, are available to customers from today.

The company has partnered with open access fibre network operator Vumatel to bring competitive uncapped fibre offerings to customers in the Vumatel footprint. Cell C is also in discussions with other fibre providers to provide an end-to-end service to customers in other areas across the country.

“In a world where content and technology are converging, customers are going to need high-speed and unrestricted access that will allow them to keep pace with their content consumption,” says Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos.

C-Fibre will initially be available in three flavours, all offering unlimited, unrestricted symmetrical data – in other words uncapped and unshaped with the same performance when downloading or uploading. These are: C-Fibre 20 Mbps for R899 per month;  C-Fibre 50Mbps for R1 149 per month; and C-Fibre 100Mbps for R1 499 per month.

All offerings include free installation valued at R1 710, free connection worth R999, and a free Wi-Fi router with LTE fail-over worth R1799, subject to terms and conditions.

C-Fibre forms part of Cell C’s focussed broadband strategy and commitment to bring the best-value fixed and mobile broadband services to the market, according to a company statement.

“We are focussed on providing the best possible experience to our customers and will be developing our broadband strategy to ensure that customers receive the quality and value they have come to expect from Cell C,” says Dos Santos.

C-Fibre service is available through a dedicated fibre sales team that can be reached on 084 14 Fibre (34273). Alternatively, customers can SMS the word “MYFIBRE” to 41992 or send an email to myfibre@cellc.co.za.

 

Cell C will make further announcements on partnerships with other fibre providers in the coming weeks.
