FTTx Market Consolidation Starting to Take Shape in South Africa

By: Derrick ChikangaResearch Analyst, George Kalebaila


This IDC Market Note provides IDC's opinion on the reported planned acquisition of Vumatel by either DFA or Vodacom and its potential impact on the market, as well as that of other anticipated acquisitions.

"The fiber market is demonstrating increased signs of market consolidation as operators with financial resources but limited market presence move to acquire established and emerging service providers. We believe the South African market will eventually be dominated by three or four major infrastructure providers." — Research Analyst Derrick Chikanga, Telecommunications and IoT, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
