What is Openserve Fibre line rental?
Openserve is the wholesale division of Telkom. They are busy rolling out a fibre network in South Africa.
Fibre is a wired alternative solution to ADSL. Like ADSL, Openserve fibre consists of two components, firstly the last mile delivery system, which is fibre as opposed to the copper wire used for ADSL.
The second part of Openserve fibre, is the access portion. Openserve fibre connects into the existing Openserve ADSL network, and any ADSL data package should work.
As a trusted Telkom Wholesale partner since 1998, iSAT sells and supports Openserve fibre lines.
iSAT supports those line services by having direct access into the Telkom systems. This mutually beneficial wholesale arrangement, helps reduce the load on Telkom support engineers and general staff.
To check if Openserve fibre is available at your location, please mail your physical address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
iSAT has a variety of Internet access solutions, Per GB, hard capped and Uncapped.
