Broadband start-up Vumatel has announced plans to build fibre-optic infrastructure in six more Johannesburg suburbs.
The company said on Monday that residents in Hurlingham, Glenadrienne, Hyde Park, Northcliff, Sharonlea and Olivedale have decided to ask Vumatel to wire up their neighbourhoods.
This is addition to a number of other Johannesburg suburbs that have already received Vumatel fibre or that are scheduled to get it.
Vumatel sales director Gorgio Iovino said in a statement that Vumatel is currently installing fibre-optic cables in the Johannesburg suburbs of Saxonwold, Parkwood, Riviera and Killarney.
Installations in Victory Park, Linden, Bryanston South and Blairgowrie are scheduled to begin in October, he added.
“We are currently making our infrastructure available to approximately 2 000 additional homes a month and still ramping up delivery thereof,” said Vumatel CEO Niel Schoeman.
“Based on demand, we will need to make services available to a further 100 000 homes next year.” — © 2015 NewsCentral Media
