Why it is worth it to change to fibre internet connectivity

A practical guide to help you decide

Having fibre will change the way you work, and entertain your family. When you select one of Initio’s fibre internet connectivity packages, all your traditional internet needs such as email and browsing are covered, PLUS, you can now access top class entertainment when you want to see it, via local video-on-demand services such as Netflix, ShowMax, VIDI and OnTapTV. The best part, is that you’ll likely be saving a lot in comparison to your current monthly costs.

Let’s look at a practical example for a typical home user:

Let’s say you’re currently paying for satellite TV (R949 for multi-device access) and ADSL 4MB line (R299 ADSL + R189 line rental = R488) and your ISP costs (R199). Your monthly expenses are probably around R1636, depending on who your service providers are, and what packages you’re on.

(The minimum line speed recommended by ShowMax is 4MB or faster per second, so if you’re wanting access to such a service via ADSL then the 4MB line is the slowest you can choose.)

If you are renting movies at R35 each through satellite TV’s limited choices, you could probably add a minimum R140 to your monthly bill and renting via the iStore costs around R44-99 per film. Those ADSL and line rental costs also exclude the cost of your phone calls.

When you sign up for Initio’s Flix 25 option for R960 a month, you will be able to connect multiple devices in your home and be able to surf the internet, and download and send emails, all while streaming your favourite series or movies via a video on demand platform for just R1059 per month (Initio Flix 25: R960 + ShowMax: R99). That’s a saving already of around R577. Start using Whatsapp or another Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service to make your calls, and that saving will continue to grow.
