Vox Telecom and Vumatel partner to connect Parkhurst
Vox Telecom has confirmed its partnership with Vumatel, the company that won the project to deploy fibre-to-the-home broadband in Parkhurst, as part of its continued commitment to providing high-speed, reliable connectivity to consumers and businesses.
"Consumers and small businesses have been waiting for too long to get access to world-class connectivity, and we are excited about what a project of this nature brings to market place," says Shane Chorley, Executive Head of Network and Operations at Vox Telecom.
Vox Telecom's partnership with Vumatel includes a promotional offer to those residents and business owners that have existing ADSL connectivity, to get free ADSL data until the fibre service is installed.
Says Niel Schoeman, Vumatel CEO: "This partnership represents the start of our vision of deploying an open access based alternative fixed last mile to end-users. The bundles on offer deliver on our initial target of at least 30% of the Parkhurst homes required to make this a viable alternative."
Voted best ADSL ISP in South Africa according to the July/August MyBroadband survey, Vox Telecom continues to strive to create value added bundles for consumers, and has tailor-made three for Parkhurst specifically.
Adds Chorley: "Our fibre bundles include Fat Pipe data that is not only unshaped, but does not expire and rolls over month-to-month, for the duration of the subscription."
All fibre bundles also include line rental, 1GB mobile data, a Vox Supafone and 100GB of backup storage.
"Our ambition is not restricted to Parkhurst. We want to roll out to 200 000 houses over the next three to four years, which equates to about 100 suburbs. And we look forward to continued partnerships with companies like Vox Telecom to realise this roll-out plan," concludes Schoeman.
