Telkom told MyBroadband in 2014 that of its 1,900 exchanges, about 600 were profitable.
The majority of Telkom’s exchanges – around 1,000, which are not profitable but are also not losing money – will be maintained in their current state.
In the roughly 300 areas with exchanges that are making a loss, Telkom plans to replace its copper-based infrastructure with 3G or LTE.
Fibre isn't the answer to phasing out Telkom. For many, including me, Telkom ADSL is the only available broadband option. While it might not be the best at times, it does what I expect it to do, so I'm happy with it.Great, give more ISPs an opportunity to provide fibre. Can we just euthanise this old dinosaur?
How about actually selling adsl and maintaining it, I am the only ADSL user in my complex of 34 units that has ADSL mainly because it took almost four years and the maximum is 4mbps. So no one else bothered.
I would think so, yes.Is there a list of proposed exchanges to be moved over to FLLA?
Source: http://www.ellipsis.co.za/local-loop-unbundling_wholesale-open-access/There is scope for a trial of LLU to take place at a currently underutilised rural Telkom exchange. This will be arranged and a working group is to be established (comprising TSA, IS and the MNOs).
What happens if the Line and data are with another ISP?However, a resident in the area contacted MyBroadband to raise concerns that he will not be able to keep his uncapped broadband service after switching to Telkom’s wireless access network.
