They set out to pro­vide the lat­est in high-speed, un­capped and un­shaped In­ter­net tech­nol­ogy – not only at an af­ford­able rate but backed up with the coolest cus­tomer ser­vice by the coolest teams, coun­try­wide.

Start­ing out with just four cool peeps in a small of­fice in Jo­han­nes­burg, Cool Ideas has ex­panded to a team of nearly 50, and re­cently moved into big­ger of­fices in Rose­bank, Jo­han­nes­burg. Not rest­ing on their lau­rels, their tech­nol­ogy and sup­port is now also avail­able in Cape Town and KwaZulu-Na­tal too.

Cool Ideas is one of the few ISPs that of­fers ser­vices on al­most any open ac­cess net­work avail­able na­tion­ally.They joined forces with over 16 big op­er­a­tors – in­clud­ing Vu­ma­tel, Dark Fi­bre Africa and OpenServe – to sup­ply the first roll-out of FTTH tech­nol­ogy to var­i­ous sub­urbs, of­fer­ing in­no­va­tive, world-class con­nec­tiv­ity and sup­port.

MyBroad­band recog­nised Cool Ideas in their third quar­ter Users Sur­vey of 2017 as the top-rated ISP in South Africa – based on af­ford­abil­ity, net­work qual­ity, billing and sup­port of their ADSL, VDSL, fi­bre, and mo­bile ISP. They were also one of four ISPs in the run­ning for ISP of the year in 2017 – how cool is that?

Cool Ideas also tops the data through­put on Steam (a gam­ing plat­form) in South Africa. This makes their net­work su­per-cool and re­li­able for gamers.

THE COOLEST OF COOL OF­FERS

Cool Ideas fo­cusses on what they do best and that’s pro­vid­ing FTTH and Fi­bre-to-Busi­ness high-speed in­ter­net. With ev­ery­thing mov­ing to the cloud, dig­i­tal tele­vi­sion and tele­phone ser­vices us­ing fi­bre-op­tic ca­bles de­liv­er­ing true high­speed broad­band ser­vices (up to 1Gbps or gi­ga­bit per sec­ond) is in­creas­ingly be­com­ing a re­al­ity.This is around 10 to 200 times faster than DSL broad­band ser­vices.

VoIP ser­vices are phones that run on your fi­bre to re­place your ana­logue land­line phones. They run di­rectly on your in­ter­net line, so there is no need for ad­di­tional tele­phone lines. The tech­nol­ogy used in VoIP ded­i­cates a dis­tinct voice chan­nel to each in­di­vid­ual con­ver­sa­tion that is un­der­way.VoIP has more af­ford­able rates and is the fu­ture of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Cool Ideas also gives you the fastest ISPs for Net­flix in SA (polled by Net­flix), so you can binge watch as much as your heart de­sires!
