    Case study: Vodacom Broadband Connect Wireless Lite

    Dr Ebrahim Mansoor uses Vodacom’s Broadband Connect Wireless Lite to support all his business operations. 

    Dr Ebrahim Mansoor’s private practice aims to be a modern and technologically up-to-date medical facility. In order to stay connected and keep up with the latest trends, it needed the affordable and simple connectivity provided by Broadband Connect (BBC) Wireless Lite. With its next-generation wireless technology, the service allows fast internet browsing and supports basic voice requirements.

    Dr Ebrahim Mansoor’s practice specialises in general and minimal access surgery and has two consultation suites in Durban, with admitting privileges at a number of other hospitals in the Durban area. The practice maintains a strong online presence and relies heavily on cloud-based solutions for its day-to-day operations.

    The Solution

    Vodacom’s Ready Business ethos is about giving its customers the competitive edge with sophisticated and robust technology solutions. BBC Wireless Lite provides an incredibly simple and wireless solution to small businesses who need powerful internet connectivity and VoIP services, while also still limiting costs.

    BBC Wireless Lite is a simple wireless internet solution designed with small businesses in mind. Using LTE, it offers a wireless connection with an average speed of 20 Mbps, which means businesses can take advantage of instant downloads, easy file sharing and seamless collaboration across the office. The package also comes with optional Wireless Lite voice numbers, giving the practice the option to make use of IP Talk, Vodacom’s VoIP service, to make phone calls over their network without disrupting their internet connection, while also dramatically reducing call charges. As a wireless solution, BBC Wireless Lite is also painless to install, with a power supply and LTE network coverage the only necessary infrastructure needed for the modem to operate successfully.

    After accepting our recommendation, Dr Mansoor was easily able to install the BBC Wireless Lite modem in his practice. He was also able to draw on the expertise of our technicians to ensure that the solution was installed correctly.

    The Results

    Dr Mansoor’s practice is now able to access all its cloud-based services quickly and reliably. BBC Wireless Lite perfectly fits the business needs of the practice, allowing it to maintain and regularly update significant medical records in their cloud-based system and also manage patient bookings and communication online.

    Not only is Dr Mansoor extremely satisfied with the solution and the support given by Vodacom’s team, but he is also actively exploring using Vodacom solutions in any of the further practices that he plans to open up in the future. BBC Wireless Lite’s easy installation and minimal infrastructure requirements also afford him a cost-effective but highly impactful solution for any new offices that he opens.


    LTE (also known as 4G) offers a faster and more efficient data network for small- and medium-sized businesses, and with speeds up to three times faster than 3G, it provides reduced network delay for business activities such as video conferencing. At an average speed of 20 Mbps, Vodacom Broadband Connect Wireless Lite lets you connect multiple devices for instant downloads, easy file sharing and seamless collaboration across the office.

    • Small and discreet LTE modem provides a stable connection to a fast, wireless internet connection.

    • A wireless modem means that no fixed-line connection is required, as long as there is 3G or LTE network coverage.

    • Optional VoIP services are also available, which do not eat into the internet cap.
