Why Openserve's fibre map says you have coverage, and your ISP says you don't

AFAIR Telkom won't confirm installation unless there's an order, which makes it double jeopardy

Seeing how Cybersmart trench, makes my jaw drop in horror
Never seen such a mess, and disorganized approach.

Another company in CT CBD, machine clean cut 2 foot wide channels, remove the tar, dig, lay the fibre, fill, compress, re-tar, and move on, and repeat, when the dudes in Lightspeed shirts are still mucking in the same crater.

Not hating or trolling, just also been in the game for a while, and am flabbergasted at the significant differences.

We are dealing with Telkom irrespective of a name change... Right?

The problem is as stated in the article. No follow through to ensure all the blocks are ticked after an area has been completed.

With proper hand over to marketing and maintenance as the last crucial step.

Project Management is NOT maintaining a spreadsheet on a computer.
It requires the PM to get off his/her butt and go out into the field to see what is going on...

So the problem is not Telkom or Openserve, but useless management personnel.

Nope, Openserve (Network Build & installation) is the correct name, Telkom name is only if you are referring to the consumer business.
That wooooosh was the sound you heard when the meaning of what he said went over your head

You can take the incompetent Openserve out of the incompetent Telkom, but you can't take the incompetent Telkom out of the incompetent Openserve.

Savvy now?

Earlier this year an openserve technician who was driving an openserve bakkie was working on my vdsl line. He was adamant that he worked for telkom.

Even the employees are confused.

This is simply anti-competitive behaviour by OpenServe.
They are obliged to make infrastructure available to other licensed operators.
This needs to be taken up by Dominic Cull to force them to make access available in the national interest.
