Metrofibre Networx and Link Africa have partnered on a project to replace all core network links in Gauteng over the next two years.
Metrofibre Networx previously leased the fibre links for its core networks, but due to high volumes and demand, it will replace the links and roll out its own fibre network.
The project will kick off in April 2016, and is expected to take two years to complete – with two major routes being completed before 2017.
Metrofibre Networx said it will be able to expand its network coverage by deploying the fibre network, and increase capacity to serve more customers.
The Metrofibre Networx core network in Gauteng currently comprises of approximately 250km of fibre routes, and connects nodes in all major data centres.
