Is internet speed really a big deal?

Internet speed, is it really a big deal? Many people talk about getting the fastest internet available like a 100Mbps, 200Mbps fibre to the home(ftth) solution but what is it you are really paying for. Too often internet service providers will throw in everything including the kitchen sink to get your business.  More recently we have seen the fight for fibre to the home heat up with many service provider gearing up to one up the next guy by offering deals to be cheaper than the next guy but are they offering you as the client real value is the big question.

So clients tend to ask questions like, “did you see that other guys price it’s better than yours?” ok we don’t really get asked that often at Otel as our pricing is amongst the most competitive in the industry due to our agreements with all the biggest fibre infrastructure providers in South Africa, but we do like answering that question as we know we offer a quality fibre internet solution and clients won’t be asking questions like why did I sign a 24 month contract for a 100Mbps internet line and I’m only getting 60Mbps or when I download I wonder why it’s so slow.

Far too often throwing in the kitchen sink can be a tactic to mask the fact that the service offered is not great quality due to various factors but not at Otel. We offer real value that will make clients experience a cost effective but a great one that will give our internet and voip users the confidence to remain with Otel for more than just the 12 month contract they signed with us.
