Abid Lateef Qadiri, Neotel’s chief business solutions and excellence executive, told MyBroadband that the service will be available in areas where Neotel has fibre access – mostly business areas in the country’s large metropoles.
The Neobroadband Fibre Lite products will complement Neotel’s recently launched NeoFlex WiMAX Lite, which offers uncapped data at speeds of 512kbps and 1Mbps respectively.
Qadiri explained that while Neotel’s WiMax service provides an excellent overall experience, fibre provides subscribers with more scalability, with speeds of up to 15Mbps.
Neotel’s new bandwidth on demand product means that NeoBroadband Fibre subscribers are able to increase their speed on the fly for between 1 hour and 24 hours. This feature is valuable to users who have high bandwidth demand for short periods, with services like high definition video conferencing.
Neotel is expected to announce their launch plans and pricing for their Neobroadband Fibre product at a later stage.
