BitCo is National Telecommunications Provider that has been revolutionising business connectivity for over a decade. BitCo builds, maintains and manages their private Fibre Optic and Wireless Last Mile Network which spans across South Africa.  Among other things it offers complete control combined with Quality of Service (QoS) and guarantees operational uptime and a network to optimally service the broad Business Market. 

Not only does BitCo offer services directly to businesses, they also enable any level of the ICT Channel to maximise their business by leveraging off BitCo’s Carrier-Grade Fibre and Wireless Network. 

Their robust network core is housed in one of SA’s foremost Datacentres. Here, they peer directly with the other major operators as well as NAP Africa, JINX, CINX and DINX. They have an international breakout in Johannesburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Cape Town. This lowers latency, call costs and aids millisecond failover options.

The company launched its FTTH offering, BitCo Home, in October 2018 which has since been available on the Vumatel Network. BitCo says that the demand they have received over the past several months has justified their move to partner with Openserve — said to be the largest FTTH infrastructure provider in South Africa.
