The fibre downfall in South Africa

There are many cable breaks because of economic growth in South Africa. These cable breaks impact all services including fibre and this downtime causes a decrease in productivity, client communications and ultimately, turnover.

Most businesses are surviving by installing multiple ADSL lines and/or Diginet lines which do not provide enough speed for the demands of the business. 

There are many challenges fibre service providers encounter:

  • Networks are optimised for market share, not performance;
  • The networks are susceptible to abusive usage patterns because they do not have systems in place to prevent this. 
  • There are high contention ratios; shared bandwidth with too many other customers
  • Hybrid networks that throw businesses in the same pool as high-use consumers.
