Telecoms deal 'to make SA more competitive'

21 August 2009

South Africa (SA) will now be more globally competitive in business thanks to a new telecoms deal, it has been claimed.

Teraco Data Environemnts has signed a contract with Dark Fibre Africa (DFA), which will give the former's customers access to the latter's infrastructure, reported MyBroadband.

Managing director of Teraco Lex van Wyk noted the partnership would allow customers to get better value and performance from their services.

He said it was an example of how two businesses could work together so consumers are not restricted to use only one carrier or provider.

Teraco asserted the partnership would provide "easier, faster connectivity for high-speed voice, data and video services".

Chief executive of DFA Gustav Smit added the move would present great business opportunities for companies in the country, making the area more globally competitive.

Teraco was founded in 2007 and has operations in Cape Town, Newlands and Isando.
