Fast network @ Omeya Estate

Telecom this week announced its plans to build a fibre-based, mobile and wireless telecommunication network at Omeya Golf Estate 30km south of Windhoek. Telecom said it will build a WiFi network to ensure wireless coverage throughout the estate and roll out fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) which uses optical cables to deliver ultra-fast broadband and telephony service with network interface speeds of more than 100Mbps.
The telecommunication utility through its cellular company Leo, will also build a 3G mobile base station at Omeya, which will be complemented with 4G towards the end of this year. Once complete, the network will offer voice, IP, data, internet, telecommunication services and value added services (VAS) to residents at the Greenfield development.
The combination of FTTH, WiFi and mobile network will give seamless access to all Omeya residents and visitors.
“Although the initial goal is to provide basic WiFi Internet access, we are actually building a high-speed fibre-to-the-home network that will be delivering even more services and applications in the future,” said Telecom Namibia’s Chief Commercial Officer Heiko Trost.
