STL, a global data network solutions company, announced that it has entered a technology partnership with South Africa's Frogfoot to provide Fibre To The Home (FTTH) infrastructure in Soweto.
With this partnership, Frogfoot, an open-access fibre network provider, will use STL's innovative connectivity solutions to enable affordable, reliable broadband connectivity to up to 20,000 homes and lower income groups in the Protea Glen East and West areas of the South African township of Soweto.
Frogfoot will utilise STL's Air-blown FTTH solution, a cutting-edge solution ideal for space constrained fibre deployment, to bring FTTH to Johannesburg. It will see the benefits of lower costs and faster time to market, while providing affordable fibre connectivity to users.
Traditional cabling solutions require up to 25% more space and cost more. STL's solution aims at considerably reducing installation costs, thus passing on cost benefits to end users, claims STL.
