JOHANNESBURG – GATED communities in South Africa have been urged to consider switching from copper to fibre to enjoy affordable internet and voice rates.
A gated community is a form of residential area or housing estate containing strictly controlled entrances for pedestrians, vehicles, and often characterised by a closed perimeter of walls and fences.
“We’re calling on owners, tenants and managers of the country’s residential estates, business parks, fibre precincts and other complexes to give themselves and their neighbours a financial break in 2018 by switching from copper to fibre,” says Rad Jankovic, Otel Communications Chief Executive Officer.
Otel Communications is an independent broadband provider.
Jankovic says the campany’s fibre-based voice and data communication within gated communities enables per minute voice calling that is an astonishing 65 percent cheaper than traditional fixed-line voice telephony.
“Estate owners and managers would be well advised to approach Otel for a customised voice and data rollout plan that taps into our quarter-million kilometre fibre backbone,” he says.
Jankovic says internet access delivered via fibre optic cable has forever changed the lives of business and residential communities around the world for the better.
“It’s crunch time for those South African estates that are still relying on copper and we’re more than happy to advise them on the most affordable way to make the move to fibre in 2018.”
From a modest regional operation in 2008, Otel is today a licensed nationwide provider of voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and broadband Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) telecommunications solutions, all powered by fibre.
