The V&A Waterfront’s roll-out of its fibre optic network started in 2012 - with only 3 ISP’s to choose from back then, to the choice prospective clients have available to themselves today.  Together with its appointed strategic technology partners Dimension Data – who deliver and manage the state-of-the-art fibre optic network throughout the property, available to all its tenancies across its property portfolio - it has grown from strength to strength, with the latest advancements in technology and the industry.

This forms part of the V&A's vision to provide tenants with an open access platform that will enable businesses of all shapes and sizes within the V&A boundaries to gain access to a world-class fibre optic network, connected to a range of top Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

For any fibre-related enquiry you may have, please email us at fibredl@waterfront.co.za and a representative will put you in touch with our integrated ISPs and the relevant ISP.


Frequently Asked Questions

The V&A Waterfront, as the landlord and approver of installations of electronic equipment within the precinct and associated buildings, has appointed Dimension Data as a partner to manage the fibre optic network.

A single trench policy has been implemented, which means that all service providers wanting to connect and provide fibre optic service to the V&A tenants will need to run their fibre optics connection through the existing V&A Waterfront fibre infrastructure.

Tenants will retain or contract their choice of network service providers, who in turn will be allowed access to the V&A’s fibre optic network (liaising with Dimension Data) to connect the tenant.

The fibre optic network provides superfast and reliable connectivity to the internet or between sites within the V&A precinct.

It has a much higher bandwidth capacity, ensures far greater service reliability, and offers more secure connections than copper infrastructure (ADSL/Diginet).

The fibre optics network options are flexible and can provide scalable bandwidth to SMEs, corporates, Internet Service Providers and Mobile Service Providers.

The bandwidth options available over the fibre infrastructure ranges from 1Mbps to 1000Mbps speeds and can extend to 10Gbps on request.

The ISP will offer tenants either a SME or Corporate internet access offering based on your business needs.
