It’s been one of our busiest quarters at O-Tel. The end of the middle of the year has seen O-Tel deploying its first phase of NGN. It has been a learning experience.
Except for a router arriving damaged by the courier, the connections went live sooner than expected.

Feedback has been good, the quality compared to ADSL is just no match. We’ve submitted applications in such volume that Telkom senior executives took notice and setup meetings with O-Tel just to ensure that the procedures and progress runs smoothly. We’re not even gone public with this service yet!

Second phase has begun and seen many applications for the NGN Standard, most popular being 1Mbps with uncapped internet.

JINX - Teraco Link Upgraded

With a flurry of smaller providers now transiting calls through O-Tel, and the need to peer with the major providers, the upgrade came 6 months before planned schedule. The link has been quadrupled and ready to handle more major sign-ups. Our inbound calls has also trebled due to the number of Number Porting applications to O-Tel.

786 Number Range

O-Tels long awaited 786 range of numbers has finally been approved by ICASA and is in process of being propagated.

CEOs’ Blog

During a recent ISPA General Meeting, I once again caught up with the bona-fide telecoms industry players. Discussing the challenges we face and how the industry is moving forward.
