High Speed Fibre: No longer a ‘metropolitan privilege’

Link Africa Open Access fibre is now live in outlying districts of the Western Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.

Link Africa is currently rolling out open access fibre in the smaller districts nationally; allowing suburbanites within more remote areas to finally have access to, what once was, a somewhat ‘metropolitan privilege’.

Local inhabitants residing in the outlying ‘less populated’ suburbs of the Western Cape, KZN and Gauteng, now have the opportunity to receive high speed fibre and choose from multiple types of data packages, delivered by a range of Internet Service Providers.

Recently, Link Africa has expanded their extensive backbone of fibre optic cables by covering a further 1800 homes within Bluff, KwaZulu-Natal, over 3000 homes within Edenvale and New RedRuth, Gauteng and as many as 2900 homes in Sunnydale, Sun Valley and Fish Hoek; enabling them to service the smaller suburbs, nationally.

This has awakened new and exciting possibilities for these residents; such as remote working and access to cost-effective home entertainment alternatives such as: Netflix, Amazon Prime & Showmax.

“Link Africa would like to thank the affected communities for their patience. Whilst the invasive nature of fibre rollouts may cause significant inconveniences to residents, we trust that the experience on our network will be worth it.” said Link Africa’s Western Cape Regional Manager, David Ashdown.

With over 15 ISP partners including: Telkom, MWEB, Vodacom and Supersonic (MTN), residents are officially able to order a package of their choice, and enjoy the benefits of this reliable internet technology for work and entertainment
