The broadband connections which Webafrica suggests for gamers


Webafrica is offering a wide range of broadband products to South African consumers, but two of these services stand out as being suitable for online gaming.

Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) is the best option, as the technology offers very high speeds and low latency.

Webafrica is aggressively growing its fibre-to-the-home subscriber base, with a footprint in 100 locations in South Africa.

Webafrica uses five providers to offer its fibre-to-the-home products: Telkom, Fibrehoods, and Vumatel – with Octotel and Frogfoot to go live soon.

“We would suggest gamers move to one of our many fibre enabled areas, and get onto one of our new Uncapped Fibre packages,” said Webafrica’s Greg Wright.

If you are not lucky enough to live in an area with fibre coverage, the next best service is Webafrica’s Home Pro ADSL packages.

“Our Home Pro ADSL’s shaping policies are geared toward the needs of gamers,” said Wright.
