Mobile operator and internet service provider, MTC, has invested in fibre optic broadband for businesses to cater for increased need for bigger capacity and faster internet speed.
“With an ever-changing communication ecosystems globally, the need to invest heavily in infrastructure remains a critical component for the growth of any Telco’s if their goal is to survive in the cutthroat communication industry,” the company said.
MTC said the launch of its fibre optic solution for businesses was driven by the aspiration to service its clientele with super-fast fibre broadband connections and bigger capacity.
“In technology, changes are unavoidable. Technology continues to change and grow along with the increasing demand for faster and high quality internet connection,” MTC’s Acting MD, Thinus Smit said.
“As a full service communications solution and internet service provider, MTC continues to keep up with the ever-growing changes and we continue to make new technology innovations to be able to provide the best internet service, supported by the latest infrastructure and reliable networks for the people of Namibia.”
Smit said fibre offers a reliable and fast internet and allows companies to use multiple devices at the same time.
“The need for higher bandwidth in businesses is rising. We are currently experiencing a trend where services that were previously on local servers at each individual company are now moving to the Internet as cloud-based services. In addition, the use of video services in businesses is also increasing, both for live use and for training,” said Patrick Mushimba, General Manager IT at MTC.
Tim Ekandjo, Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer, said when a customer contacts MTC requesting a fibre optic connection, MTC checks the company’s location along the routes which its cables are laid.
“Currently we are laying more fibre cables connected to our roadside cabinets, from the cabinets we will be able to direct fibre lines directly to your place of business or premises, with the least turn over and minimal installation timeframe as possible,” Ekandjo said.
