Snowball Effect deploys wireless broadband in Cape Town

Wednesday 14 January 2009 | 10:14 CET | News
South African ISP Snowball Effect has deployed high-speed wireless connectivity in Cape Town central business district. The company said its service covers some 95 percent of the city's central business district. According to Snowball Effect CEO Eugene van der Merwe, the company recognised the need for companies with several outlets within the city centre and Western Cape to connect their branches. This was formerly only possible with a Diginet line, which is costly, has capacity limitations and can take months for installation. With two wireless 'high sites', Snowball is able to provide a link of up to 2 Mbps between one location and another at a fraction of the cost. The company guarantees installation within two weeks.
