Here comes Neotel – Competition to Telkom

Some good news for the SA tech people out there ;-)

_ Financial Mail – Here comes Neotel

SA’s second fixed-line network operator was meant to begin operating in May 2002, when Telkom lost its statutory monopoly over fixed-line telecommunications. Six years later, the company – known now as Neotel – will finally launch its services to consumers.

All signs are that Neotel is finally gaining traction – and that it’s prepared to take the fight to Telkom. Despite warning initially that it wouldn’t start a price war with Telkom, indications are that it will compete aggressively on price. The company is still reluctant to talk prices, but some details are emerging.

Hat tip to Tim, who still does not have a blog yet.. ;-(

When will they be coming, I have been having such a problem to get a fix line, never mind ADSL but that is all I want, ADSL! Telkom currently have no infrastructure where I live and there is no plan to do anything soon about it…. ;(
