Dark Fibre Africa (DFA) announced that it has laid more than 5,000 kilometres of fibre infrastructure.
DFA, which currently employs over 200 permanent staff and over 6,000 people through its business partners, added that they have an expenditure plan in excess of R3-billion.
“Besides the labour benefits, we also provide the infrastructure that enables licensed operators like Vodacom, MTN and Cell C to give communities access to the network,” says DFA CEO Gustav Smit.
“Our footprint extends nationally and links with the SEACOM and the EASSy cables at Mthunzini in KwaZulu Natal and links to the WACS cable at Yzerfontein and the SAT 3 cable at Melkbosstrand in the Western Cape,” says Smit.
