Shame, poor Telkom. Imagine where we'd be if the local loop was actually unbundled like it was supposed to be...Over-the-top players such as Google are entering the fibre broadband space, the chief executive said, while WhatsApp has entered the voice calling space.
“We’re being attacked from all flanks,” Maseko said.
That means you are not using the economies of scale correctly. Suck it up!... Maseko said that their fixed costs are much lower and they are much more agile.
Because it is illegal for you to lobby your neighbourhood to get together to put out a tender to install something?Now if some of these Fibre providers would be as kind as to bring it to my area, ...
That is going to bite them sooner or later.Nobody is competing with Telkom because they are not doing anything. Telkom should have started fibre rollout years ago, but they were content to just get the maximum profit from their existing infrastructure. When small companies started fibre rollout they also didn't start a proper rollout plan, they tried to copy them and roll out fibre in the same area. Then they abandoned it in favour of LTE. So really, nobody is competing with Telkom.
Yep. There results for the last year again showed that fixed voice is declining rapidly. ADSL is growing slowly, but as fibre spreads this will also stop and start to decline. Then Telkom's fabled copper network that they don't want to let go of will be worthless. Except for copper thieves of course.That is going to bite them sooner or later.
Fixed wire (whether copper or fiber) still remains king.
Nah, will not happen.Yep. There results for the last year again showed that fixed voice is declining rapidly. ADSL is growing slowly, but as fibre spreads this will also stop and start to decline.

Look at the numbers... most local FL telco's would give both their nuts for 10% of TKG's revenue. R7Bn in voice calls and R8Bn in line rental and R5.5Bn for data... So if the other FL operators are really hurting TKG let's see their financials.Nah, will not happen.
Our beloved guavamint will step in and take steps to ensure telkom's survival.
