On the 11th July 2019 Mighty Comms commenced with trenching in Protea Glen to create a new Broad-band connectivity for the lo-cals.
After communication with all stakeholders and agree-ments reached, the company began trenching in Glen Ridge. This is to roll out the FTTH (Fibre to the Home) a service that stems from its predecessor FTTB (Fibre to the Business), which has seen a significant growth in recent times.
Protea Glen is fast growing with new developments and houses being built. Attract-ing new homeowners in the middle-class bracket. Property in the area is reasonably priced for new owners with sub-sidies by government promising to make it easier for first-
time buyers. It is for this reason that the organization started in Protea Glen, with other parts of Soweto to follow after it has covered the whole area.
Mighty Comms will be working in partnership with Frogfoot as the Access Provider and VOX as the ISP, to offer affordable Un-capped WI-FI deals for the residents. The packages include free installation and a router on a month-to-month contract. The lowest package for uncapped Wi-Fi with a 10/10mbps speed is R589 per month.
Mighty Comms and the above-mentioned stakeholders are also working with a local community and have so far created jobs and imparted skills. Local businesses like Sebenza Internet Café in Glenridge owned by a community mem-ber has also been adopted to be provided with Free Fibre connectivity.
The FTTH plan will also provide a few schools in the area with connectivity for the computer laboratories of the schools.
We are proud of this milestone and look for-ward to bringing fast; reliable and Uncapped Wi-Fi to the residents and local businesses of Protea Glen at an affordable price.
