Frogfoot acquires Link Africa’s FTTH network in Western Cape

29 Sep 2021

Frogfoot Networks has acquired the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) assets of Link Africa Western Cape for an undisclosed sum, TechCentral writes. The deal, which comes several months after MetroFibre Networx bought Link Africa’s FTTH network in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), will help ‘solidify’ Frogfoot’s position in the fibre market in South Africa. Frogfoot CEO Abraham van der Merwe, said: ‘Some parts of the network we are acquiring today were built through a joint venture between Frogfoot and Link Africa and represent our entry into the FTTH market. The acquisition increases the number of homes passed by Frogfoot to 312,000 and cements its position as the third-largest fibre network operator in South Africa’. Frogfoot is owned by ICT group Vox.
