Fibrehoods, a joint venture between RMB Holdings and Waterfall Investment Company, has announced plans to extend its 100Mbit/s fibre-optic broadband services to more homes in Gauteng.
The company is currently deploying fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband in Craighall, Craighall Park, Atholl, Inanda, Illovo and Dunkeld, with connectivity to these areas set to be completed by the end of the year.
Fibrehoods project manager Dave Fisher said the company is feeding the fibre network to Vandia Grove, Beverley Gardens, Bryanston Extension 3, O’Summit, Kensington B and Bryanfern and will begin the roll-out process to homes in these areas within the next few months. Bordeaux South will follow.
The provider uses an aerial technique to deploy fibre into homes, which it says allows it to deploy infrastructure quickly and cost effectively.
“The aerial network utilises existing infrastructure and, where necessary, new poles are installed to string the fibre. The advantages of the aerial fibre is that it is easier to maintain, quicker to deploy and most importantly, there is no trenching which means that there is less disruption to residents,” Fibrehoods said in a statement. – © 2015 NewsCentral Media
