Route 21 Corporate Park, the R2-billion office park development near Irene, became the first office park to install an open-access dark fibre network three years ago. It has now moved into phase two, which includes the delivery of fibre to every building in the office park. 
This is according to Org Geldenhuys, MD of property management and development company Abacus Divisions, who confirms that the contract will be fulfilled by dark fibre specialist Dark Fibre Africa, which originally brought fibre to the office park and the surrounding areas.
Geldenhuys says this will allow companies to get real broadband connectivity from any number of service providers.
“Dark Fibre Africa will be using new processes to lay fibre into the buildings. These processes do not require trenching or lifting the pavement.”
Gustav Smit, CEO of Dark Fibre Africa, comments: “Our dark fibre infrastructure allows all end users to request their own basket of high-speed services from the service provider of choice.”
With investment from Remgro, CIV Holdings, and NewGX Capital, Dark Fibre Africa specialises in financing, building, and installing carrier-neutral, open-access ducting infrastructure.
