Web Africa boosts gaming, drops uncapped ADSL prices

Web Africa had dropped uncapped ADSL prices, and is restructuring its network with benefits to gamers

Web Africa has announced that it will route its ADSL traffic via Internet Solutions’ backbone, starting the process from next week.

This change means Web Africa will have multiple network access points across South Africa, offering better latency to gamers on their network. Prior to the upgrade, Web Africa clients would have their traffic routed through the provider’s Cape Town IPC, adding latency to the data round-trip to far flung gamers.

Whilst IS will provide its ADSL backbone network, Web Africa will still manage its ADSL product groupings, with full control over their product offerings.

Web Africa has also reduced the price of its Home Uncapped ADSL products by up to 32%.

In addition to the uncapped ADSL price reductions, Web Africa is also planning to bundle roaming access to WiFi into their ADSL offering.
