Snowball was founded in 1998 to service internet solutions within Stellenbosch and the surrounding areas.
Snowball was founded to combat the lack of high speed, competitively priced internet connectivity in the Stellenbosch area which left many farms and businesses with expensive out-of-date Internet solutions such as ISDN and Diginet. Our competitors were holding customers hostage to long contracts with extremely high and inflexible pricing. Within this framework it was easy for us to know where to competitively pitch our business, and almost 20 years later, we’re still going strong.
Adopted Fibre and LTE-A to complement our wireless network to offer YOU diverse options from Fibre-to-the-home, to licensed and unlicensed band wireless, to LTE services. Snowball has always prided itself in being a technology agnostic company, and these days our connectivity services are very diverse. In addition to this, our network still boasts redundancy across the board, on all our high sites and in our data centres in Stellenbosch and Cape Town.
Proud to be local and leverage our national group for industry-leading best practice.
By providing exceptional support and competitive services, Snowball has built up a loyal base of customers in our almost two decades of operating. Our case was made even stronger due to the strength of our website and online presence, both of which were way ahead of our peers. On the backend of the business, the core of our network was backed up by a modern data centre with total redundancy and exceptional power.
Today Snowball consists of a dedicated and passionate team who strive to provide excellent internet infrastructure coupled with helpful and knowledgeable customer service. We always try to be there for the client and know that if we are, then they’ll be there for us.
