MetroFibre Networx goes live in Summerstrand

Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 14:11 CET | News
South Africa's MetroFibre Networx has officially launched the first fibre internet Summerstrand with a new 10Mbps fibre internet connections. Summerstrand in Nelson Mandela Bay was one of the first areas in the Eastern Cape to get fibre through MetroFibre Networx using a process called micro-trenching. Micro-trenching is done by specialised machines and trained operators who cut a narrow and shallow trench into the road surface, right alongside the pavement where the curb and the tarmac meet.
