Openserve has announced that it will upgrade the fibre and ADSL line speeds of its customers for three months, effective from 1 May 2020.

“Responding to market changes as a result of COVID-19, Openserve fibre and DSL customers will enjoy upgraded data speeds for a three-month period, effective 1 May 2020,” the company said.

 “In response to these market changes, Openserve has taken the necessary steps to ensure ISPs are not negatively impacted, offering double the speeds to qualifying FTTH and DSL customers from May until July,” the company said.

Speed upgrades

Line speed upgrades for Openserve fibre will only benefit 10Mbps, 20Mbps, and 40Mbps lines, with 100Mbps and 200Mpbs lines remaining unchanged.

Openserve will upgrade all ADSL line speeds below 10Mbps to 10Mbps, subject to distance and network limitations. Existing 10Mbps, 20Mbps and 40Mbps ADSL lines will remain unchanged.

“Services unable to achieve 10Mbps will be excluded from the upgrade,” Openserve said.
