KOUGA CAN NOW SIGN UP FOR TRUEWAN FIBRE!
True Technologies now also offers to the Kouga area and nationally! TrueWAN Fibre can be installed at Homes, Townhouses, Flats and other larger developments at no cost to unit owner/ occupant during the FTTH roll-out phase.
We have partnered with National 3rd Party Fibre providers who offers “Open Access” Fibre Networks – meaning that once the Fibre TP & ONT is installed, you can choose your ISP to sign up with. Your chosen Fibre package from us or other ISP will be activated as soon as the Fibre in the area goes live.
If you already signed up or pre-ordered Fibre from ANOTHER ISP, you can still cancel your pre- order, as long as the ISP has not yet installed the Fibre Termination point inside your premise. Once your cancellation is confirmed, you can sign up with True Technologies cc for TrueWAN Fibre.
Check the cancellation policy in the ISP's T&Cs

Micro-trenching – This process involves using specialised machines to cut a narrow trench (30mm to 50mm wide) into a road’s surface, alongside the pavement where the curb and the tarmac meet, to lay the fibre optic cable. This significantly reduces disruption to the area.
Boundary boxes – A boundary box is a box installed about 0.5 metres above the ground against your boundary wall. This is the connection point between the fibre network outside your house and the Termination Point inside your house.
Termination Point – This is the white box that is installed in your home, against your wall. Your router will be connected to this via ethernet cable.
Router – This is the device that delivers the Wi-Fi signal throughout your home, allowing you to connect remotely to the internet.
Optical Network Terminal – The ONT (also called the modem) connects to the Termination Point with an optical fibre cable. It connects to your router via a LAN / ethernet cable and translates light signals from the fibre optic line from your TP into electronic signals that your router can read.
The Fibre Process
- Fibre infrastructure is deployed in the street in a suburb,
- Boundary boxes are placed on the pavement between houses,
- Termination point order form is signed, giving permission for installation,
- Termination point is installed into houses, connecting fibre to the boundary box,
- Fibre is connected to the national fibre network to provide access to the internet,
- Customer chooses ISP and orders router,
- Customer enjoys internet connection.
