Fibre is the only technology that will deliver enough bandwidth, reliably and at a low enough cost to meet South Africa's broadband connectivity demands. The traditional method of building fibre optic networks in urban areas is through trenching — digging ditches into the ground. This results in major traffic disruptions and environmental challenges in dense city areas and is a slow and expensive method of deployment.
Link Africa, an affiliate of the Link Africa Group, specialises in building fibre optic networks with minimal trenching. With its unique patented technology, existing city infrastructure such as sewer systems and storm water drains are used to install fibre optic networks, with considerable added value to municipalities.
