    SNO news.

    Seems from this article on M&G that we are a bit closer to seeing the SNO up and running eventually.
    The heads of agreement, signed with the Department of Public Enterprises, provides for the SNO to have access to an inter-city, high-capacity, full-services network, the SNO said in a statement.

    The arrangement came close on the heels of the SNO's purchase of high-capacity fibre-optic network assets from Transnet.

    The network was originally created by state-owned enterprises Eskom and Transnet, who are also shareholders in the SNO.

    "The network/asset transactions will go a long way in allowing the SNO to deploy a high-capacity national telecommunications network based on leading-edge convergent technologies," said Ajay Pandey, the SNO's managing director in a statement.

    The SNO would switch on international wholesale services at the end of August and business services by the end of this year. It would be the first full-scale, national infrastructure-based competitor to Telkom and was expected to help reduce high telecommunications costs in South Africa.
