Choosing the best Webafrica service for you

The first thing you need to do when choosing a Webafrica service is to find out what internet connection options are available at your address. This is really easy  – all you have to do is visit our home page and type your address into the search bar. Our interactive map will automatically find all the internet options in your area and outline the details for you.

Once you have decided on the kind of service you want you will probably be wondering what size package you need and what kind of line speed you should choose. 

Hopefully, this guide will make it easier for you: 

What Line Speed Do I Need?

Under 10 Mbps: These are similar speeds to what you get with a good ADSL line, but 100% more reliable.

Ideally suited to:

  • Two to three devices
  • Checking email
  • Browsing online (including social media)
  • Occasional media downloads (photos and music)
  • Occasional streaming on YouTube, etc.
  • Streaming for one user at a time

10 Mbps – 40 Mbps: This speed bracket will give you a better sense of what Fibre can do than you would at under 10 Mbps.

This speed bracket is suited to:

  • Three to five devices
  • Media-rich data downloads
  • HD Streaming
  • Working online in real-time
  • Email
  • Browsing
  • Social Media
  • VoIP calls
  • Video chat

50 Mbps – 1000 Mbps: This is what Fibre is all about. The only thing faster is standing in front of someone and talking to them face-to-face, and even then we’re not sure if this wouldn’t maybe be faster.

Ideally suited to:

  • Multiple data-intensive devices (as in a big company)
  • Media-rich data downloads at High Speeds
  • HD Streaming by multiple users
  • Working online in real-time
  • Email
  • Browsing
  • Social Media
  • VoIP calls
  • Video chat with zero lag times by several users at once

How much data do I need?

Uncapped: Give unlimited access to as many devices as you need to without ever worrying about running out of data.

  • Send and receive emails
  • Browse news and social media
  • Upload and Download documents
  • Unlimited HD media downloads and uploads
  • Streaming multiple channels
  • Gaming non-stop
  • Frequent VoIP calls
  • Working in real-time
  • Data-intensive applications
