The founder also assured users that the website is updated frequently.
“We are currently on a weekly automated update process but are looking at how to do this faster and more frequently,” he said, adding that it was free for ISPs and networks to get listed.

Du Rand said that they’re currently in talks with networks on the best solution for address queries.
FibreTiger also has a statistics page, serving up figures related to the popularity of ISPs, networks, speeds and caps.
“What is also interesting is how the lesser known ISPs like HomeConnect have come out on top in terms of popularity!” the founder noted.
