MTN to splash out on network

Mobile operator MTN plans to roll-out a 5000km optical fibre network across South Africa estimated to cost R1,3billion over the next two years, it said on Friday. MTN said in June it may build its own fixed-line network in South Africa to trim the levies it has to pay former monopoly Telkom to use its backbone and to meet demand for Internet access. - Reuters
