INSIDE PARKHURST’S OFF-GRID POWER PLAN – PRICING AND DETAILS REVEALEDThe Johannesburg suburb of Parkhurst is nothing if not a technology trend setter. Last year, the local residents’ association took the decision not to wait for Telkom to come and lay fibre in the area, and put together its own tender for a private company to come in and cable homes up.ADVERTISINGIn a striking example of grassroots democracy in action, residents voted with their wallets and their custom: they decided how much they were willing to pay, and found a company prepared to supply superfast broadband on that basis.It’s really not an overstatement to say that this was a watershed moment in South African telecoms; the number of suburbs following suit is rising almost daily and fibre to the home (FTTH) is a reality in many middle class boroughs already. Nimble networking companies, whose previous business model had been based on large corporate sales, are now outflanking the established telcos who are struggling to keep up.
