Things are happening as somebody's been digging trenches throughout the PE suburbs for over six months.These ISP's need to stop moaning from their sofa and start digging trenches. They are fighting their wars through politics and regulation instead of actually attempting to compete directly. THAT is why it is taking so damn long.
.Neotel, Vodacom and MTN have partnered and are busy constructing a national fibre network

He's hit a snag, which will hopefully be resolved, though: http://mybroadband.co.za/news/columns/41951-a-gentle-plea-to-telkoms-ceo.html
Yep! And I understand Steve Song(http://manypossibilities.net/2012/01/a-gentle-plea-to-telkoms-ceo/) is tirelessly working on it,but....Maps please!! From all you players in the fibre laying/provisioning business for the sake of progression for our country.Aren't darkfibre also doing some national cables?
Yes, but do they really need to run the cables BETWEEN those points in pretty much the same place? Wouldn't a different route be a key selling point?draw a line between PTA - JHB - DBN - EL - PE - CPT and close the loop - everyone will most likely be following that path with their various National Long Haul projects. my 0.02c
I cannot agree more with any statement in MyBB this year so far!!You mean like Telkom's routes? Pity they won't leverage their advantage and drop their pricing!
