iBurst reaches network milestone

16 Oct 2007

iBurst South Africa says it has installed the 200th base station on its national wireless broadband network. The milestone has been reached just weeks after the operator signed up its 50,000th customer. iBurst markets 1Mbps wireless internet access at prices starting from ZAR49 (USD7.20) a month, although this includes just 40MB of data transfer. The top priced package, offering 9.5GB of downloads a month, costs ZAR1,099 (USD162). iBurst has coverage in most major metropolitan areas, including Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Pietermaritzburg and Bloemfontein.
