Telkom builds high-speed network
Cape Town - Telkom has begun rolling out service nodes that will replace existing infrastructure to deliver high-speed broadband to consumers.
According to a MyBroadband report, the telco will roll out 3 700 multi-service access nodes (MSANs) that will replace older cabinets.
These MSANs will be used to offer high-speed ADSL services for home users.
Users can expect speeds of 1Gbps on the fibre cables and up to 40mbps on the copper infrastructure where available.
According to Alphonzo Samuels, managing executive for network infrastructure provisioning, the first MSANs have been installed in Waterkloof Ridge in Pretoria.
