Victory Park, Linden, Bryanston South and Blairgowrie will be the latest suburbs in Johannesburg to get fibre-to-the-home broadband, start-up fibre telecommunications operator Vumatel said on Monday.
Residents can expect trenching operations to commence in the final quarter of the year, the company said. The four suburbs join other areas getting Vumatel broadband. Others already annouced are Parkhurst, Greenside, Parktown North, Killarney, Riviera, Saxonwold and Parkwood.
“Together with the newly announced suburbs, this brings the tally to eleven confirmed [neighbourhoods] within the relatively short time since announcing the Parkhurst endorsement in July 2014,” said Vumatel CEO Niel Schoeman in a statement.
