WIOCC Extends Connectivity To New Locations in South Africa

Extending its national hyperscale network with 30 additional PoPs on a new 1,700km terrestrial link between Durban and Cape Town.May 12, 2021

Mauritius – Affordable connectivity is available in more towns and cities in South Africa after capacity wholesaler WIOCC extended its national hyperscale network with a further 30 Points of Presence (PoPs) along the country’s southern coastline – between Cape Town and Durban.

Part of a multi-billion Rand investment by WIOCC to enhance its network infrastructure in South Africa, this latest addition enables Internet Service Providers, mobile network operators, content providers and cloud operators to deliver their services more cost-effectively into a significant number of additional locations. Furthermore, WIOCC’s policy of not imposing aggregation restrictions allows clients to serve multiple end-users over a single WIOCC connection.

The 30 additional PoPs are on a new 1,700km terrestrial link between Durban and Cape Town, bringing more affordable connectivity to coastal towns from Somerset West, Grabouw, Caledon and Swellendam in the Western Cape, through to Doonside, Kingsburgh and Isipingo in KwaZulu Natal.

Services available from WIOCC in South Africa include high-quality Carrier IP Transit (IPT), point-to-point national connectivity and high-performance Metro Connect, as well as open access colocation services in specific locations. In each case, solutions can be tailored to meet clients’ specific requirements and are backed by first-class support – which includes WIOCC’s highly-responsive Client Champions who are available 24x7x365.
