Asked what effect its sub-sea connection from Mtunzini to Cape Town will have on South Africa’s broadband market, Simpson said that it will continue Seacom’s role in transforming the international connectivity market in Africa.
This is kind of cool, mess reliance on the land based national backhaul for CT and DBN peeps, both CT and Durban have started delivering metro fibre and will no doubt be expanding. My guess is a wireless ISP could provide international connectivity with full redundancy (WACs, SAT3, Seacom and EASSY) without touching the Telkom/Neotel/IS/etc terrestrial networks. For local they can peer at Terraco in each with all the guys that do free peering and for the rest use international bandwidth.
Nothing wrong with the terrestrial backhaul between mtunzini & malkbos. SAT3/SAFE however have both.
