Exploring South Africa's Diverse Connectivity Landscape for Internet and Cloud Services


2 min read

In the vast expanse of the South African savannah and bushveld, diversity thrives. Multiple species of antelope roam freely, each adapted to its unique environment, while predators lurk in the shadows, ever vigilant. This intricate ecosystem mirrors the landscape of South Africa's connectivity services, where a multitude of operators and ISPs coexist, each with its strengths and weaknesses.

Just as the bushveld supports various species, South Africa's connectivity landscape boasts a plethora of operators like Vumatel, Openserve, Octotel, MetroFibre Networx and more, alongside numerous ISPs. However, unlike a dominant predator reigning supreme, no single operator or ISP holds absolute control. Instead, businesses must navigate an agnostic approach to connectivity, embracing the diversity of providers to meet their needs effectively.

Unfortunately, this diversity comes with challenges. Operators and ISPs differ vastly in their delivery methods, operational practices, and customer support approaches. Transparency is often lacking, with incidents occurring without clear explanations or resolution insights. Service level agreements become mere placeholders, offering little real value in times of need.

Support, if it can be called that, often consists of little more than a call center agent guiding customers through tedious troubleshooting steps. The burden of testing and diagnosing connectivity issues falls squarely on the customer's shoulders, despite the ISP's ability to perform these tasks more efficiently themselves.

Amidst this challenging environment, businesses seek a reliable solution to navigate the complexities of connectivity. Enter SD-WAN from Fusion Broadband South Africa - the Dricus du Plessis of networking. Like a determined fighter in the ring, SD-WAN from Fusion rolls up its sleeves and steamrolls through obstacles to ensure uptime for businesses.

Wrapping up, just as the South African bushveld thrives on diversity, so too does the network ecosystem in the realm of connectivity services. With SD-WAN from Fusion, businesses can harness this diversity to their advantage, overcoming challenges and achieving reliable, resilient connectivity in an ever-changing landscape.
