MTN intensifies fibre network roll-out

JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MTN, the mobile network operator, has expanded its fibre to the home (FTTH) footprint to the Western Cape.

Trenching has already commenced in the picturesque suburbs of Fresnaye and Bakoven as the operator prepares to connect approximately 1 000 homes with this high speed network before the end of the year.

The rollout of this high speed fibre network by MTN to the residents follows a successful deployment of FTTH to a number of suburbs around Johannesburg.

MTN has already commenced the civil works in preparation for the rollout of an open access network.

MTN expects to connect about 561 homes in Fresnaye and 373 homes in Bakoven with FTTH before the end of the year.

Alpheus Mangale, Chief Enterprise Officer for MTN Business SA, says the expansion of the fibre network to Fresnaye and Bakoven is in line with MTN’s strategy of deploying high performance networks to its customers and offering subscribers with a distinct customer experience.

“The availability of a world-class network has been the missing piece of the puzzle in this area, an absent link that will now catapult this neighbourhood to a new level and transform it into a digital hub. We are excited to bring this ultra-fast network to the residents of Fresnaye and Bakoven. Many of the residents here are well-travelled people who have experienced first-hand the benefits of high performance networks.

He says this supersonic network will enable the residents and businesses to fully enjoy and realise the digital experience.
