Fibre is the best thing since sliced bread in the layman’s opinion; everyone wants it because there is an expectation that it is fast, says Laurie Fialkov, CEO at Cybersmart.

Gartner predicts that 20.8 billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2020. By comparison, in mid-2016, there were an estimated 6.4 billion connected devices in the world, says Juanita Clark, co-founder and CEO of the FTTH (fibre to the home) Council Africa. “Combine the number of devices, the pace at which it is growing and the applications it is being used for and you can easily see the need for more fibre in the network.”
