Vox Telecom fibre packages in South Africa: A Best Internet review

Vox Telecom fibre packages in South Africa: A Best Internet review

In your home, what’s the one thing that causes the most frustration? Is it dirty dishes or the never-ending food bills? For us, it’s a slow, inconsistent internet connection. Fibre is the leading choice for fast and reliable internet, with Vox fibre being a top choice for many homes. Best Internet takes an in-depth look at Vox fibre to see if what they’re selling is worth buying.

If you are considering getting a fibre connection, here's a detailed breakdown of Vox Telecom to inform your decision.

Who is Vox?

Born into Gen Z, Vox Telecoms is a company that's been the head of the cool kid's telecommunications club in South Africa since 1998. Vox offers many internet products - mainly voice, Wi-Fi, LTE data, and fibre packages. Vox fibre has partnered with Vumatel, Octotel, Openserve, TT Connect, Frogfoot, Balwin, Netstream, Evotel, Link Africa and MetroFibre, offering a wide range of coverage for fibre connection. Can we get a green tick emoji?

Where are Vox Fibre packages Available?

The answer to this question depends on your area. Because fibre is still a growing industry in South Africa, it hasn’t been able to reach every nook and cranny from the mountains of the Western Cape to the shores of KZN just yet. But, no worries - Vox Telecoms has 13 points of presence across the country, including Durban, Pretoria, Joburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, so you’re likely to have coverage. However, when it comes to fibre, it is vital that you check your eligibility.

6 Top Features of Vox Fibre Deals

  • Internet speeds of up to 1GB per second. We’re geeking out over this. Vox is one of the only fibre providers in South Africa that can offer internet speeds of up to 1GB per second (1,000 Mbps)! A good internet speed is about 25Mbps and up, which will support HD streaming, gaming, social media surfing, emailing and downloading music. Having speeds this high means you'll enjoy all these interruption-free.

  • Capped and uncapped bundle deals. Every Vox fibre deal on offer allows you to choose a capped or uncapped package. Capped packages are generally cheaper, so if pricing is an important factor and you don't have a lot of internet usage, opt for capped packages. Uncapped packages are ideal for those needing fibre for work and for multiple devices and tend to be a bit pricier.

  • Fibre deals catered from small homes to large corporates. So, you run a business and you are the head of the household. That’s a lotta boss behaviour. Maybe the household shares the same space as the business! Whichever set up it is, Vox fibre packages cater to both options. Because fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) expects more devices to plug into it, Vox’s FTTB packages have higher internet speeds and customised options for cloud services and video conferencing.

  • Free installation. Most internet service providers (ISPs) will charge you an installation fee, but Vox includes the installation in your fibre package. Some packages even provide a free-to-use router.

  • Matched upload and download speeds. For those of you that may be scratching your heads on this, upload and download speeds are for different things. For example, a good download speed would be for images, video, and audio files. You’ll need a good download speed to stream, scroll through Instagram, or listen to music on Apple Music or Spotify. Upload speeds are about how many megabits-per-second of data can be sent to a server from your computer. This would be for sending emails, live gaming and video calling on Zoom. So, with Vox fibre packages, you can expect a matched speed for all of your online activities.

  • Month-to-month fibre plans. Unlike other fibre providers with 24-month contracts and sneaky terms and conditions, Vox comes with no long-term commitments! They have a range of products and plans for you to choose from. And you have the option to opt for a month-to-month plan.

Best Internet’s Vox Fibre Verdict

We rate that Vox Fibre is worth the money. If you are already a fibre customer and now considering doing a switch, Vox should definitely be at the top of your list of internet service providers.

Vox fibre deals range from R554 per month for 10-Mbps upload and download speeds to its largest fibre package at R1,999 per month for 1,000-Mbps speeds. We'll be straight with you, spending money these days without knowing if it is worth it isn't wise. Even for a slower line like the 10-Mbps package, spending over R500 monthly seems a little steep.  But investing in good internet will save you a lot of frustration and time.

Especially when you take into account the pros of choosing Vox fibre - the consistent internet speeds, free router and installation, and the option to opt-out of your package at any time. What’s even cooler is the fact that Vox’s FTTB packages include voice, cloud services and video conferencing extras - a must for businesses or those who work from home!

So, you can bank on Vox to make it worth your money.
