Telkom’s “invincible network” plans

Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko said that Telkom is planning to improve its network to make it “more robust and more invincible”.

Speaking to staff, Maseko said that Telkom’s network team has many objectives which they need to meet.

He said that Telkom will continue to invest in its top 600 exchanges, which generated 90% of the company’s revenue.

Telkom is planning to optimise its bottom 1,400 exchanges, and manage them in such a way that there is not more invested in these exchanges than the revenue they create for the company.

Maseko said that Telkom is planning to accelerate its next generation network rollout to make sure they get high speed broadband into people’s homes.

Telkom is also looking to integrate mobile and fixed networks, and strengthen the field force efficiency.

Maseko said that Telkom wants to make sure that they have the right levels of spectrum so that they compete effectively.

He added that they are working to get the right alternatives around local loop unbundling to ensure that Telkom is not prejudiced by this planned intervention.
