Seacom is bringing its high-speed fibre Internet access services to business and home users in the southern areas of Johannesburg, starting with the rollout of 8 kilometres of fibre in Meyersdal, Alberton.
The last-mile fibre network will pass several businesses, residential developments and shopping malls in the area, it said.
This falls in line with Seacom’s plans to rapidly extend the reach of its fibre network to more parts of South Africa, including areas that are currently underserviced by last-mile fibre operators.
This is the first phase in Seacom’s plan to roll high-speed fibre services out in the greater Johannesburg area.
The company said it will partner with various resellers to address the home, retail and business markets across the region. These resellers are taking pre-orders for fibre Internet access, with services expected to go live before the end of the year.
