But what makes you think this would be for your middle class citizen? As far as cape town goes, most of the upper class areas have 10mb (Baring some of the more rural wealthy areas). And these are the people that will have 40mb ADSL, and will be target for IPTV40meg? A bit laughable seeing as Telkom haven't even gotten around to completing their 10meg upgrades. Pray tell where is the sleeping giant suddenly going to get that kind of willpower & energy from? Did you forget that Telkom is like a branch of the ANC .. big on promises but slow on delivery?
Besides, at current Telkom rates it'll probably be cheaper for all fourteen people that'll qualify for 40meg connections to book flights to the US and watch the movies there.
Seriously, all current IPTV-like offerings make use of existing infrastructure. This is totally Telkom pie-in-the-sky.
You didn't raise any arguments as to why it would be a flop to target a small group of people that will pay comparability much moreIPTV targeted just at high income suburbs with 10Mbps+ exchanges will be a flop.
There is a huge market in middle class suburbs where you have IT savvy peeps, that are not rich enough to want to get DSTV premium, but wouldn't mind subscribing to netflix/hulu if only... if only they had a broadband connection.
I know Waterfall Estate (JHB) will have as per the estate agent, also those with Satellite services won't have a dish outside, all will be wired to a central point and Fibre throughout the estate to be rolled out.What made you think it would be everywhere?
This will be a service aimed at the very high LSM's, who's areas will certainly have the top ADSL speeds
