Fibre ISP 123NET extends Workonline relationship for West Coast expansion

Already a long-term customer of Workonline, it was an obvious choice who to turn to for IP transit and connectivity when KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa based 123NET expanded its FTTx services to Melkbosstrand near Cape Town.

“We need a reliable IP transit provider so that all our different customers’ expectations, whether home or business users, are met,” said Kalin Bogatzevski, CEO of 123Net. “It is very easy to work with the professionals at Workonline. We give them our target, explain our needs, and soon we have a solution that works in terms of quality and price.

“The biggest challenge users face is South Africa is the lack of high quality and well-priced Internet Access services in South Africa. Now South Africans have the chance to jump directly to the cutting edge thanks to the fibre technologies we use, combined with the IP transit we take from Workonline.”

The 123NET team builds its own fibre infrastructure, from digging the trenches, laying the pipes, rolling out the fibre, splicing, and connecting last-mile customers. They then support and manage the entire service themselves. Their services are currently available in Umhlanga and Durban North, and Melkbosstrand is currently under construction with the first customers already connected.
