A few ISPs, including Afrihost and Cool Ideas, have already launched 500Mbps retail products based on the new Openserve service. Afrihost charges R1,297 ($86) for an uncapped 500Mbps Openserve service, while Cool Ideas charges R1,399 ($93).
Just remember that many Ethernet cables (or WifI), as well as router ports, may only be operating at a max of 100Mbps, so before considering this you may want to be sure your hardware in the house is not holding you back. Also, many servers, and international speeds, may not be sending data fast enough for you to get the benefits of this.
