Project summary

The project aims to deploy last-mile optic fibre cables across the national landscape of South Africa. The Optic fibre infrastructure (licensed and patented technology), which utilises existing sewer systems, can be deployed four times faster relative to conventional methods and at less than half the cost. An initial capital investment of R300 million will lead to the establishment of a South African last-mile Optic fibre infrastructure company, i3 Africa. The project will increase broadband access, thus having a huge impact on the liberalisation of broadband access in South Africa.
