Fibre is the fastest technology for internet access. ADSL is an old technology that runs on copper infrastructure, it’s limited to 10Mbps and provided by Telkom. Fibre has a long life span, it’s orders of magnitude faster than copper and provided by a new generation of telco. We bring fibre connectivity directly into every home using the same technology as in leading international broadband markets.
We offer an alternative to Telkom’s aging and highly congested ADSL network. Octotel rolls out its fibre network in partnership with the community and local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) using an Open Access business model. We are an independent fibre provider that provides line rental services to ISPs on a fully vendor neutral basis. Octotel was started by a team of telecommunication industry veterans with a passion for building exciting fast growing companies.
