To stand out from the rest of their competitors, wholesalers must offer a broadband solution that maximises value for customers.

With the rapid growth in the number of ISPs across South Africa, wholesalers simply cannot afford to offer an inferior service.

Less than a decade ago, fibre networks didn’t exist beyond affluent business nodes and gated residential communities. This has changed dramatically in recent years with fibre networks rolling out far and wide, including to lower-income and rural areas. At the same time, broadband fibre has steadily become more affordable and capable with uncapped services now offering consumers speeds of 100Mbps or more at highly competitive prices.

And “competitive” is certainly an accurate description of the current landscape with dozens of service providers now selling fibre packages. This has created a bustling market with customers now gaining access to a wide range of choices available from small and large providers. To tap into this lucrative market, it’s vital to offer a world-class service – and an established partner with world-class infrastructure to leverage makes that possible.
