In what is believed to be a first for South Africa, local Internet service provider (ISP) XDSL is offering free Internet connectivity out of its Centurion data centre to all clients that subscribe to co-location services, and to all existing and new fibre broadband customers.
Danie Fourie, director at XDSL, comments: “Each customer that takes a full cabinet receives uncontended 2Mbps Internet connectivity at no cost. All our current and new fibre broadband customers will receive additional Internet connectivity out of the data centre to complement the Internet service at their head offices that they subscribe to.”
XDSL’s Centurion data centre offers carrier-neutral co-location services. XDSL has a high capacity national fibre network that incorporates the networks of all the major carriers. It also has offers high capacity connectivity via the WACs international cable. The new 800 square metre data centre is open to viewing by new customers.
Says Fourie: “We are changing the rules of engagement in this sector in South Africa by setting new standards for value delivery. Technology is advancing every day and XDSL is dedicated to putting its technical capabilities to work to ensure its customers gain maximum value and business advantage.
“Our collocation and cabinet pricing is competitive and with the expansion of our data centre we will be further expanding our services in the network and infrastructure space.”
