CENTURION: Telkom Business has put in place plans to eventually migrate all its customers to fibre over time.
With fibre broadband services now at peak demand due to many factors including the Covid-19 pandemic, Telkom Business continuously looks for ways to deliver best-in-class fibre connectivity.
Telkom Business has partnered with third party fibre service providers to extend its fibre footprint and keep customers up to date with the latest technology and more reliable connectivity.
Telkom Business’ Executive of Marketing: Innocent Pereira says “As a partner of the small and medium business, we are always looking for opportunities that will allow business owners to fully take advantage of our affordable solutions.
“While Openserve is already servicing Telkom Business customers, the expansion of the open-access fibre network with fibre partners means that more small and medium businesses can benefit from the coverage and get connected to access high-speed broadband across South Africa,” he said.
“The partnership with other fibre providers enables us to assure that we can always keep all our business customers connected, both existing and new customers,” he added.
Openserve, a crucial partner of Telkom Business, has also introduced fibre-on-demand services as part of its efforts to eventually migrate its customer base from ADSL to fibre.
Telkom Business has put in place plans to eventually migrate all its customers to fibre over time, as there is less risk and reduced downtime that can occur from cable theft or interruption from bad weather conditions.
Telkom Business will continuously be in contact with every customer when such migration is planned, to ensure that customers are connected to do business.
For customers not in a fibre footprint, the existing infrastructure will remain up and running. Customers will be contacted in advance should there be a need to move them to an alternative technology.
Helping small business owners to digitally transform
“As SMEs adjust to doing business in the middle of a pandemic that has changed the world of business, Telkom Business aims to lend a hand by enabling them to evolve with technology, and transition into best-in-class broadband fibre connectivity, which offers faster data transmission and higher bandwidth,” Pereira said.
“This is to not only ensure survival in this new environment but to also allow SMEs to do business more efficiently and effectively while ensuring that their reduced budgets stretch further,” he added.
This is part of Telkom Business’ strategy to enable small businesses to digitally transform. This drive further includes the introduction of online retail stores, financial services, customer relationship management software, etc.
