Fibre Broadband for the Wealthy Questioned

High installation costs for fibre broadband results in it predominantly being rolled out in wealthier suburban areas, according to Alfreds

High installation costs for fibre broadband results in it predominantly being rolled out in wealthier suburban areas, says an expert.

According to Duncan Alfreds, companies such as Telkom and Vumatel have been targeting more upmarket suburbs with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) technology.

He quotes Kalin Bogatzevski, chief executive officer of 123Net, as saying that, “There are many new fibre players focusing on FTTH opportunities, although the reach and availability is substantially limited – some focus on gated and cluster communities specifically.”
