While South Africa has made notable progress in expanding connectivity and digital infrastructure, substantial obstacles remain that prevent equal access and participation in the digital realm. Amid these challenges, Zoom Fibre has emerged as a prominent player committed to bridging the digital gap.
The lack of affordable and dependable internet access in many marginalised communities hinders education, entrepreneurship and various other sectors in South Africa. The high costs associated with data and the limited availability of broadband infrastructure present difficulties for individuals in these communities to connect online. This digital division creates inequalities in educational opportunities, employment prospects, access to information, and social engagement.
Rural areas and townships often face the greatest hurdles in terms of digital exclusion. These regions frequently have limited or no access to broadband infrastructure, resulting in sluggish and unreliable internet connections.
Zoom Fibre’s role in the digital revolution
Were you aware that in 2022, 31.8% of South Africans lacked access to digital technology? That corresponds to approximately 19.2 million people in South Africa. Zoom Fibre is addressing this substantial absence of digital infrastructure by narrowing the digital divide and unlocking opportunities previously inaccessible to the underserved.
In recent times, South Africa has witnessed a rapid expansion of fibre infrastructure, transforming internet access for individuals nationwide. Fibre-optic cables, with their capability to deliver lightning-fast speeds and unrivalled reliability, are being deployed in urban and rural areas. This growth has provided communities with high-speed internet access, eliminating barriers to connectivity and fostering digital inclusion throughout South Africa.

Why you should consider fibre
Fibre connectivity offers a plethora of advantages that set it apart from other internet options.
Fibre technology, using thin strands of glass to transmit data, delivers unparalleled speed and stability compared to traditional copper-based connections.
Unlike conventional connections that are susceptible to interruptions, fibre ensures consistent performance, guaranteeing uninterrupted access to online services, educational resources and e-commerce platforms.
The technology offers unmatched speed in comparison to DSL or cable connections and maintains consistent speeds regardless of peak usage times.
Fibre connections are impervious to interference from weather conditions or electromagnetic signals, resulting in a stable and reliable internet connection. Bid farewell to disruptions caused by external factors.
With abundant bandwidth capacity to accommodate increasing data demands, fibre can easily cater to your evolving connectivity needs, whether you’re a growing household or a business expanding its operations.
Investing in fibre is a future-proof choice as it can adapt to emerging technologies and escalating bandwidth requirements. Fibre networks are well-equipped to handle the demands of evolving digital services, ensuring you remain connected to the advancements of the digital era.
