With the ridiculous prices of mobile data, prepaid data and satellite in South Africa, can you really afford not to have a Fibre line installed in your home? If you are considering one, you should definitely consider getting an uncapped Fibre line. There simply is no better option, and it could end up saving you money!
What exactly is an uncapped line? Uncapped Fibre line simply means that you cannot run out of data – there is no limit to how much data you can use every month. A capped Fibre line is an internet connection that only allows you to use a certain amount of data every month. Once your cap is reached, you will no longer have an internet connection. This becomes a frustrating issue for many households, as more and more of our work is online-based, and our connection demands increase almost daily, with everything going more digital. So running out of data in the middle of the month isn’t really an option for any household.
Aside from the need to be connected to the internet for basic, everyday purposes like research, banking and emails, we also want to be able to connect to the cloud to back up our data and devices, as well as stream music, series and movies. Running a business from home requires an even more reliable connection because we are likely to hold video or voice calls, which means we definitely cannot afford to run out of data, as this will directly affect our business and potentially our income. Running out of data is a hassle and an inconvenience that can easily be avoided by opting for an uncapped Fibre line.
Unshaped or shaped lines are similar to uncapped or capped lines. It restricts your usage in some ways. With a shaped internet connection, priority is given to services like email, internet browsing and FTP. Other internet protocols like file sharing, online gaming or streaming receive a lower priority, which means your connection will be slower. An unshaped line is an internet connection that treats all protocols the same so there will be no interference.
If you are looking for a Fibre to the home connection package, an uncapped, unshaped line is your best option. Although a capped or shaped line could be cheaper than an uncapped, unshaped line, but you will run into frustrations sooner or later as your internet usage needs grow. If you want the best internet speed connection for your home, you need a line that places no limitations on what you can do at home with your internet connection. An uncapped, unshaped line will allow for a seamless connectivity experience, rather than leaving you with no connectivity nearing the end of the month once you have reached your data limit.
Aside from the general uses of an internet connection like checking emails, browsing the internet, downloading or uploading files, an uncapped, unshaped Fibre line will allow you to seamlessly connect and use your line for streaming or gaming, which generally takes a lot of usage and can deplete your monthly data allowance quite rapidly.
With an uncapped, unshaped line, you get what you pay for and you can rest assured that you will never lose connectivity or run out of data. Signing up for an uncapped line also gives you the peace of mind in knowing that you spend a certain amount of money on your Fibre line so you are never surprised with additional costs or hefty, unexpected bills.
