OTEL’s national agreements with the country’s three biggest fibre providers gives it access to enterprise-scale long haul and in-metro fibre capacity.

OTEL is the Gauteng-based telecommunications services providers.

“Access to Neotel’s NeoCarrier services, for example, means lower costs to our clients and access to carrier grade fibre which adds greater value to our ISP and WISP customers,” says OTEL CEO, Rad Jankovic.

“By adopting a blended approach of continuing to build our own fibre network while accessing the fast-expanding networks of leading players, OTEL can promise residential users, small and medium enterprises and corporates access to high speed retail fibre services in as little as three to four weeks,” says Jankovic.

By following this aggregation model and tapping into the growing 250 000 kilometre combined network of the country’s main fibre players, OTEL FTTH at R599 monthly for a 10 Mbps service and OTEL Business Fibre at R1 399 monthly for a 10 Mbps service solve several issues affecting fibre roll-out by independent operators.

These include delays being experienced in obtaining municipal approvals, limited backhaul availability and even topographical considerations affecting the speed of fibre deployment.

From a modest operation in 2008, OTEL is today a licensed business-to-business provider of VoIP & broadband Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions.

Its nationwide dedicated network and cutting-edge technology positions OTEL as one of South Africa’s leading telecoms providers with a specific focus on meeting the needs of small and medium enterprises.
