— Our story

Hmmm, Us?

Since you asked…

It was a dark and stormy night in the Cape, when lightning lit the sky and our CEO’s internet connection went “Boom”!

He picked up his landline telephone and tried to call the guys who installed his copper ADSL cable all those years ago … but no one answered that call.

With no Wifi to his name and a crazed look in his eye, he cried out “There has to be a better way!”

It was then that he vowed to find the fastest, most reliable, and most affordable internet connection.

He scoured the west, trying every ISP that came his way, but still he could find no satisfaction – and so he decided the time had come to take the internet into his own hands. 

He hired only the best, the bravest, the nerdiest IT geniuses in all the land, and had them build a network to rival all that had come before it (in Cape Town). 

Why? Because aside from Fibre, Faircom is part of a bigger group – Faircape – and he knew that if he wanted a better connection, then every one of his valued Faircape customers deserved it too. 

And so Faircom was born – to provide a service brave and true – to all the fair Captonians and their neighbours.

The adventure is just beginning
