18 Apr Interview: Vumatel CEO Niel Schoeman

In this episode of TechCentral, Duncan McLeod talks to Vumatel CEO Niel Schoeman about the fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) market in South Africa. In the discussion, Schoeman chats about how the idea of Vumatel came about, the initial roll-out in Parkhurst and the rapid deployment of infrastructure across Johannesburg. Also in the podcast, Schoeman talks about consolidation in the FTTH market, running a national project with 6 000 people on the ground, the ultimate size of the fibre market and whether Vumatel is ultimately going to be snatched up by one of the big telecoms operators (his answer may surprise you).
