WINDS OF CHANGE FOR SA’S BANDWIDTH LANDSCAPE

WINDS OF CHANGE FOR SA’S BANDWIDTH LANDSCAPE According to Zinia the next wave of broadband will see companies benefitting from faster speeds at the same price point as their current expenditure. Businesses in South Africa will soon be able to get a 500 Mbps fibre line for the same price as a 100 Mbps one. However, I don’t believe it will stop there.

Broadband land grab strategy great for SA

Broadband land grab strategy great for SA While the term ‘land grab’ has negative association, in the telecommunications space it means good news. South Africans pay a lot more than other countries for broadband and the move this week by MTN to slash fibre broadband bodes well for consumers. As fibre networks started rolling out it was inevitable that broadband prices would start bottoming out, as evidenced by MTN’s announcement on Tuesday to slash fibre broadband costs for consumers. Warren Bonheim, chief commercial officer (CCO) at Zinia, an internet service provider (ISP) and wholesaler......

Zinia signs EOH and Metrofibre Although the roll-out of fibre is picking up, more than a third of South African businesses can’t get the connectivity they would like or need due to a lack of coverage and infrastructure.
