LA FIBRE is almost here!

I dream of this every night...

Finally, after months of waiting and randomly harassing Orange employees, LA FIBRE, which I now consider Orange's flagship Internet product in Mauritius, is available where I live. I talked to them this week and they said their technical team would get in touch with me once they are ready* to upgrade my line. I am currently on the ADSL 1MB package coupled with a Netgear router I bought separately for Wifi (this is a long story which I may write about later).

I took another look on the Orange website and I'm going to upgrade to the Broadband 10M package for Rs 799 per month. It comes with unlimited data but only the first 75GB at maximum speed and I don't need that much anyway. I'm not a heavy downloader and typically use the Internet mainly to browse websites, check my email and occasionally listen to songs on YouTube.

Orange also has the MyT packages which include TV channels but since I don't watch much TV except for a few documentaries, I have absolutely no interest in it. As it stands, I am currently wasting money on Canal Satellite to watch only half a dozen channels.
