    Vodacom extends fibre reach

    Vodacom's new partnerships with third-party providers means even faster deployment of fibre across SA.

    Vodacom today announced that it has signed lease agreements with third-party network infrastructure providers Fibrehoods, Openserve, Century City Connect, Link Africa and Dark Fibre Africa to deliver Vodacom Fibre products. Vodacom customers will now have access to Vodacom Fibre services through these providers, including Vodacom Fibre Broadband, Vodacom Fibre Fixed Voice and Value Added Services.

    Third-party network infrastructure partnerships give Vodacom access to pre-deployed FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) networks inclusive of access build and active equipment. This rapidly improves time to market. Leased networks allow customers across a broader geographical area to enjoy the Vodacom fibre service offering.

    Vodacom now passes over 25,000 homes with its own fibre infrastructure and the company has to date invested R500 million in urban infrastructure. Van Beek says: ‘The rollout of fibre remains a critical part of Vodacom’s growth strategy. We anticipate significant growth in this area and besides investing significantly in our own infrastructure, we will also continue to sign up additional third-party network infrastructure providers’

    Vodacom Fibre is currently available on Dark Fibre Africa, Openserve, Link Africa, Fibrehoods and soon will be added to the Century City Connect open access network, providing ultra-fast internet access. For more information please visit www.vodacom.co.za/fibre or call 082 1904.
