Vodacom has aggressive fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-business (FTTB) plans, which include connecting thousands of homes and businesses to fibre-based broadband access over the next two years.
Vodacom recently said that it is actively rolling out fibre in business parks, while the group is also preparing to do the same in gated communities.
It is understood that the company already has live fibre deployments in Illovo, and is actively growing its footprint.
The company will be offering commercial FTTH and FTTB products offering speeds of up to 100Mbps.
Vodacom is currently in a closed period, which means that the company cannot provide details about its fibre plans; however, MyBroadband confirmed the plans from trusted sources.
Industry speculation suggests that Vodacom will start offering commercial FTTB products in the second half of 2014, with FTTH products set to follow early in 2015.
