Telecom Namibia launches FTTP range

22 Sep 2014

Telecom Namibia has launched fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband services for businesses and consumers with connection speeds of up to 120Mbps/40Mbps (download/upload) in selected areas, including Maerua Mall in Windhoek, the Swakopmund Central Business District (CBD) and the Omeya Residential and Golf Estate, with plans to gradually expand the service to other towns and business districts in the country. The new ‘Speedlink LitePlus’ range of FTTP-based packages includes several ‘unlimited’ monthly tariffs starting from an entry-level 15Mbps service, whilst the telco also announced it is boosting the connection speeds of existing Speedlink ADSL broadband packages by up to two-times free of charge.

The commercial launch of FTTP follows Telecom Namibia’s nine-month user trial (December 2013 to 30 August 2014) in homes at the Omeya Residential and Golf Estate (30km south of Windhoek) to ensure stability and reliability for customers.
