Fast Internet for Constantia

FibreConstantia Fibre’ is an initiative to bring super fast fibre Internet to the Constantia Valley and are represented by the Constantia Property Owners Association, Constantia Watch, Nova Constantia Crime Watch, Constantia Hills Community Watch and the Strawberry Security Association.

Fiber to the home , also abbreviated as “FTTH”, is the installation and use of optical communication fiber cable from a central point directly to individual residences, apartment buildings and businesses to provide unprecedented high-speed Internet access. FTTH dramatically increases the connection speeds available to computer users compared with technologies currently in common use.

If you have not yet registered, please take a minute to do so at as maximum support is required for this project. The registration is non-binding and simply allows the community to gather interest before talking to fibre service providers.

Spread the word to your neighbours and friends – and encourage them to register on the site. The more registrations Constantia gets, the quicker the potential roll-out will happen.

If you have any further queries, please read through the frequently asked questions and answers on or email
