The demand for affordable broadband connectivity has significantly grown during the COVID-19 pandemic as consumers rely on having a consistent and reliable Internet connection.
With this in mind, Openserve, South Africa’s largest telecommunications infrastructure provider, is set to wholesale its copper broadband access network through its new suite of Openserve Pure Connect products across multiple speeds.
This new product now allows customers to directly obtain the broadband service from their ISPs and will no longer be required to obtain a copper line from Telkom Retail.
According to Openserve CEO, Althon Beukes, the wholesaling of copper broadband access product compliments Openserve’s overall fixed broadband strategy.
Openserve believes that through this initiative, it will transform the current channel, process, pricing and product sets across its portfolio thereby making it easier for its clients to utilise, stimulate and connect the end customer on its larger broadband access network.
“This will certainly cater to the increased connectivity and consumption needs by providing an affordable and reliable service to our customers. This should also further support and stimulate online business and the economy at large” says Beukes.
Openserve says it will provide further details to its clients and connectivity partners in the coming days and is confident that through its comprehensive wholesale broadband access proposition it will be able to cater for broadband connectivity and data consumption needs of the consumers.
