South African fibre prices have seen a steady decline in the past year, with coverage extending to more suburbs. 

Compared to ADSL, fibre offers faster and more stable internet connectivity without having to pay Telkom to make use of its telephone lines. 

A Business Insider South Africa comparison found that fibre prices decreased at most South African internet providers. 

Axxess dropped the price of its 50Mbps from R1,219 to R915 per month - a whopping 24% decrease. 

Mweb prices dropped by more than R40 expect for its 20Mpbs line, and at Web Africa prices dropped by roughly R100. 

Vox was the only major internet provider to increase prices, but its price now includes an R1,008 installation fee which was previously excluded. 

Mweb was the cheapest 10Mbps provider at R579 per month, Vox the cheapest for 20Mbps with R785 per month, Axxess the cheapest 50Mbps provider at R915 per month, and Web Africa the cheapest 100Mbps provider at R1,019 per month.
