    I do not know of any walk-in stores, but you could test Takealot's Premium Delivery option and have it delivered on Saturday.

    Hi

    thanks.

    I found the problem.
    My neighbor's gardener cut my fiber cable.
    have logged a call, not sure what the turnaround time would be.

    Not very happy at this stage.

    I fear that will be a big repair, as in time wise.
    They have to pull in a new fibre from the nearest junction box.

    Strongs, for future reference you can get those cables from HD Cabling, you can buy online from them and they also have a store in Centurion if I remember.

    If you need I might have a piece of fiber cable. No sure how long you need. Need to find some to splice it for you though

    That may very well mean paying for a whole new installation.

    jip that is my fear also, I have now started to make a fire under there asses, its now a work week, and I am working from home.
    and do not have unlimited mobile data.
    I cannot believe that they do not have teams on standby for emergency's like this, ( well its only an emergency to ME and probably not them)

    thanks for the offer, there is enough spare cable at the junction box, but I see you are in edenvale, and I am only seeing your post now.
    If I do not get any feedback from frogfoot, I will possible contact you.
    Thanks.

    Getting fibre cable is nothing, it's even cheaper than copper cable these days, the problem is the splicing.

    For this reason and in case I want to move my fibre point one day I asked the guys when they installed to leave me a meter or 3 of slack. It ended up being around 6m which now lies rolled up in the ceiling where the fibre enters the house.

    Hi.


    There is about 10m of cable in the junction box, the junction box is not even 1m from where it was cut. but I do not have spare wire on the house side of the cut.
    I am also willing to pay for a new cable from the house to the junction box, but getting frogfoot to come and do the job is the problem.
    I have been on the phone everyday since Thursday and still cannot get somebody to tell me WHEN they can come and fix my fiber.
    I understand it was long weekend bla bla bla.
    but where is your crew that is supposed to be on standby.

    if I had the cable and splicer (and the knowledge) i would have fixed it myself long time ago.

    okay so after a bit of nagging and begging they came, they patched the cable, now I have to wait for another team to come and replace the cable, but at least I am up and running again.
