Octotel deploys open-access FTTH network in Cape Town

5 Jun 2015

Octotel, a new telecoms operator founded by entrepreneurs Joe Botha and Michael Pollock, is rolling out fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) infrastructure in the Cape Town suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Moille Point, Three Anchor Bay, Green Point and Fresnay, reports TechCentral. Octotel is deploying its fibre network in partnership with the community and local internet service providers (ISPs) using an open-access business model. It says it is an independent fibre provider that provides fibre services to ISPs on a fully vendor-neutral basis, adding that it will be responsible for operating and maintaining the fibre infrastructure, while ISPs will be responsible for the supply of data and voice services.
