Vox Telecom is planning to launch their own uncapped ADSL service, and is even looking at their own 3G service.

Vox Telecom CEO Douglas Reed told MyBroadband that they believe uncapped ADSL is sustainable, but highlighted that a “proper business model” is essential.

“Bottom line, [uncapped broadband] is what the consumer wants and a way has to be found for the Fair Access Policies (FAPs) to not only be transparent but not antagonize the average users,” said Reed.

Vox Telecom will use its own network to deliver uncapped ADSL. “It is an evolutionary process and in the interim we do offer Telkom, IS and MWEB wholesale packages,” said Reed.

Reed is well aware that it is not easy to make uncapped ADSL work financially with fluctuating margins and stiff competition.

“It is a continuous balancing act to reduce input costs and to stay competitive in this highly deflationary sector of our business,” said Reed.

He added that economies of scale, investment in infrastructure and a focus on Internet services is key to make ADSL profitable.
