Polokwane, we are ready for you!

Our goal has always been to service "data-starved" areas and to use fibre connectivity to change the way customers use the internet. Fibre provides far more possibilities within a household, business and even a community.

The benefits of fibre make an immediate impact on how an individual, family or corporation uses the internet and offers a faster, safer and more reliable connection with unlimited downloading and uploading speed.

VoIP (Voice over IP) can cut both landline and cell phone costs dramatically by making calls both locally and internationally through fibre.

A fibre network in an area also means CCTV cameras can be placed around the community. This will play a significant role in improving the overall security.

We will be rolling out fibre infrastructure in Polokwane and are already live in more than 600 homes in Bendor Park and Welgelegen.

Polokwane fibre rollout

This is only 10% of our total planned coverage in Polokwane. Areas include Flora Park, Polokwane Central 1, Polokwane Central 2, Fauna Park, Bendor Park Exit, Penina Park, Nirvana, Geluk SH, Tweefontein SH, Sterpark, Landine, Polokwane Ext 12, Annadal and Mypark.

"While we are looking primarily at the consumer market, there are opportunities to target certain types of smaller businesses that are based in and around the residential areas," says Head of Sales, Shane Chorley.

"Frogfoot is expanding in these towns as they meet our criteria in terms of the number of houses that can be connected, as well as the average household income in these areas."

Schools can also apply for a fibre link if they fall within the coverage area. This will give these schools access to a free FTTH connection of up to 1Gbps as part of Frogfoot?s schools promotion campaign.

Our strategy will be to roll out fibre to secondary towns in South Africa including Bloemfontein, East London, Ermelo, Middelburg, Pietermaritzburg, Richards Bay, and Witbank.
