Octotel is Cape Town’s largest Open Access Network focused on both Fibre To The Home (FTTH) and Business (FTTB). Our aim is to provide fibre seamless fibre connectivity to over 100 000 Cape Town homes and businesses. Octotel’s services are affordable and reliable, and we offer a choice of services from 20 independent Service Providers.

Why Fibre?

Fibre is the fastest and most stable technology for internet access. ADSL is an old technology that runs on copper infrastructure, it is severely limited in capacity and capability. Fibre on the other hand has a 20+ year life span, it is orders of magnitude faster than copper and provided by a new generation of telco operator. We bring fibre connectivity directly into every home using the same technology as in leading international broadband markets.

Why Octotel?

We offer an alternative to our current 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.
