Metrofibre connects more homes to fibre


As part of its goal to become the preferred fibre provider to all residents of the greater Kyalami area, Metrofibre Networx is planning to connect homes to fibre in Beaulieu, Heathcliff and Blue Hills estates. By Staff Writer

Metrofibre, which is targeting more than 600 homes, is planning to complete the connection of homes in Beaulieu, Heathcliff and Blue Hills by April 2016.

“We set ourselves a goal to become the preferred fibre provider to all residents of the greater Kyalami area,” explains Jacques de Villiers at Metrofibre Networx. “By winning the contract to supply these three estates we are now one step closer to achieving this goal.”

Fibre sales during the project phase will be handled by Kiklo FTTH, an approved Metrofibre reseller, after which the site will become an open access network and residents can then place orders with a list of approved Metrofibre ISP’s, as well as with Metrofibre directly,


Established in 2010, Metrofibre owns and manages South Africa’s first globally compliant Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) open access fibre network and connects in excess of 60 cloud, application, voice and Internet service providers with their customers.

The company claims that its network has been built in line with the highest global standards, making use of only superior networking products, providing customers with a carrier class open access fibre network that offers ultra-high speed and low latency connections.
