JHB wireless ring goes live

Wireless infrastructure provider, Amobia, completed the roll out if its first network ring in Johannesburg this week. Amobia's Johann Botha says that there has been a big demand from their clients for wireless last mile services in Johannesburg. With the addition of Amobia's JHB network many clients can now interconnect their branches.

This first Johannesburg ring covers the following areas: Soweto, Northcliff, Randburg, Sandton, Gallo Manor, Midrand, Edenvale, Bedfordview, Linksfield, JHB CBD, Kensington, Rivonia, Riveria, Norwood, Randburg Waterfront, Bryanston.

More coverage will be created based on demand from clients, says Botha.

Botha says that Amobia is hoping to obtain an ECNS (electronic communications network services). The licence will allow Amobia to build national network infrastructure.

Amobia is an outdoor fixed wireless infrastructure provider offering "last mile" access services including cost effective broadband, WiFi hotspots, and high-speed point-to-point links.
