Come, come, Telkom

Mon 21 Nov, 2005

Telkom-bashers owe Stuart Gunter a vote of thanks, I reckon. He is the Durban software developer who has done some sums to show just how badly done by we South African internet users are. His findings were posted on a watchdog website and reported in The Mercury last week. They showed that it was cheaper to fly to Hong Kong and back to download certain packages than it is to stay here and download them using Telkom's ADSL services. Also putting the byt... Read more

Telkom splutters over register mystery

Mon 21 Nov, 2005

CLUNKY telecommunications company Telkom has played directly into the hands of its critics, who make the startling claim that because the company has botched its administration, it has no registered shareholders. The Companies Act says a firm must keep “a register of its members” either by “entries in bound books” or through “recording the particulars” in a way which forms a “durable or sustainable medium”. But despite the fact that Telkom is the ni... Read more

The other revolution

Fri 25 Nov, 2005

There is a revolution spreading countrywide. It is happening in towns and cities as disparate as Knysna and Johannesburg, in big places like Durban, Cape Town and Tshwane, and small ones like Stellenbosch. At least 34 other muncipalities are also in on the game, racing to set up their own telecommunication networks. They are agnostic on their choice of technologies, although the smaller towns typically are opting for wireless while the giant metropolitan a... Read more

Wireless in Jo'burg

Fri 25 Nov, 2005

The City of Johannesburg is saving millions of rands through the use of its own high-speed wireless telecommunication network, which connects more than 500 municipal buildings. So dramatic are the cost savings that the capital costs of establishing the network have been paid in just three months. Cost savings have meant that all 500 municipal buildings are now connected as opposed to just one-third previously. Connection speeds are significantly fa... Read more

Proudly affirmative

Fri 25 Nov, 2005

It may never have been his intention, but Sizwe Nxasana, the incoming CEO of First Rand Retail, could very well be employment equity and black economic empowerment’s (BEE) knight in shining black armour. Nxasana, better known for his seven-and-a-half-year stint as Telkom’s CEO, says he owes his rise as one of the country’s most influential executives to the two measures put in place after 1994 to redress the race-based economic divide. “I am a beneficia...

Telkom customer satisfaction slumps

Sat 26 Nov, 2005

Fixed-line telecommunications company Telkom has a lot of catching up to do with mobile telephone services, according to market-research company Synovate's latest findings. "While all four of the participants in Synovate's South African Satisfaction (SAS) Index suffered a decrease in customer-satisfaction ratings, Telkom's showed the most marked decline," said spokesperson Jon Salters. The gap between the cellular service providers -- Vodacom, MTN an... Read more
