iWayAfrica Zambia has announced the launch of fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) for both residential and business subscribers. In a press release the company confirmed that the new fibre service has already been successfully deployed to major corporates seeking to establish dual-links for redundancy purposes. Further, it claimed that its FTTP offering would complement its existing products, noting that it already holds a ‘strong’ market share in VSAT satellite services. iWayAfrica Zambia says it now provides connectivity to remote farmers, lodges and other areas with limited infrastructure, as well as in urban areas where VSAT has proven to be a consistently reliable communications tool.
Commenting on the fibre launch, Ulrich Lassen, head of business at iWayAfrica Zambia, was cited as saying: ‘The launch of this new fibre service offers customers a full turnkey solution for their communication needs. This extends from dedicated Internet, IP transit, MPLS, VSAT backhaul and redundancy, to numerous value added services such as mail hosting, archiving and data back-up.’
