Herotel is bringing fibre internet to Lydenburg

Herotel is proud to announce that it’s building a world-class fibre internet network in Lydenburg after receiving approval from the local municipality. Once complete, residents and businesses will enjoy internet that is faster (up to 100Mbps), more reliable and offered at prices far lower than ADSL, wireless or LTE. Simply put, it is a game-changing internet connectivity technology. 

Herotel is also proud to confirm that local labour will be used to build the network. Nico Lottering, who is the General Manager of Herotel Xpress Mpumalanga, says. “It was very important to me that we keep things local as opposed to importing contractors from outside the region who don’t care for Lydenburg. The same will be true when the network is complete. You will deal only with people from the area, real people who know where Lydenburg is and what the community stands for. Not some call centre in Cape Town or Johannesburg. 

Herotel has opted to construct a fibre network that is strung mostly along poles in the mid-block between homes, which is the preferred method of large telecommunications companies like Verizon in the United States and British Telecoms in the UK. Putting the fibre optic cables in the air has numerous benefits for Lydenburg, but for most residents only one reason will matter: better monthly prices. By building this way we can offer residents packages that are up to 33% more affordable than if we had to trench the network. It’s the same quality fibre network, we just put the cables in the air instead of under the ground.

Another benefit for homeowners is that there will be no need to dig up your pavements or gardens to install the network. There may be limited trenching required to cross some roads, but this will be minimum and won’t directly affect any homeowners. 

Herotel is also offering an additional perk to homeowners. “Our team members, dressed in uniform, will be approaching residents to plant poles within the servitude on their property boundary line. In gratitude for allowing us to plant a pole on their property, we will be offering a limited special promotion to those residents who assist us first,” he says. ‘’The Lydenburg fibre network represents a technological investment into the local community, which will improve access to education, entertainment and open new business opportunities. As a further bonus to homeowners, it has been proven that access to fibre increases the value of properties over time.’’
