If you don’t understand – Optical network terminal (ONT) and Fiber connectivity, let me make it simple for you.
An ONT is a small device that connects your home to the fiber optic network. It converts the light signals from the fiber optic cable into electrical signals that your computer and other devices can understand.
Fiber connectivity is a type of internet connection that uses fiber optic cables to deliver data. Fiber optic cables are made of glass or plastic and can transmit data much faster than traditional copper cables.
With Frogfoot RISE, customers like you, get a device called an ONT installed in their homes. This device has WiFi built into it, so you don’t need to buy another router. You can buy prepaid vouchers for different speeds and time periods.
For example, you can get a voucher for 10 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload speeds for 7 days for R69. Frogfoot RISE has a few advantages compared to other internet services.
It’s affordable, with packages starting at R69 for 7 days. It’s fast, with speeds up to 50Mbps download and 25Mbps upload.
It’s reliable because fiber optic connections are better than copper connections. And it’s convenient because the ONT has WiFi built in, so customers don’t need to buy another router.
