Broadband Infraco looking for staff

Broadband InfraCo was established in 2006/07 by the Department of Public Enterprises as an intervention to ‘rapidly normalise telecommunications market efficiency and address the cost of broadband to other industry players and end users, by having infrastructure in the national backbone and international connectivity at reduced prices.’

Broadband Infraco plans to  “increase broadband connectivity services in the South African market and to provide licensed telecommunications service providers access to services at significantly lower but sustainable levels in the South African market.”  The state-owned telecoms company is headed up by CEO David Smith while other prominent board members include MultiChoice CEO Nolo Letele and chairman Andrew Mthembu.

Late last year the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) awarded Broadband Infraco an individual electronic communications network services (I-ECNS) licence, allowing it to provide electronic communications network services to other licenced operators using its own fibre optic network infrastructure.

Shortly afterwards the company advertised a request for tenders from potential partners  to design , engineer, supply and implement an Internet Protocol (IP) core network. 

Broadband Infraco is now looking for technical staff to join the company.  The telecoms infrastructure provider is seeking various telecommunications professionals, including a maintenance manager, facility and site technicians, fibre optic technicians, a network operations systems engineer and network operators.

Applications for these positions close 22 January 2009.
