Although South Africans have always embraced the culture of entrepreneurship, certain elements of the South African economic landscape have proved to be barriers to the success of some businesses and consequently the job creation and economic development that could result from the success of these businesses. Access to reasonable quality telecommunications is one such barrier.
The exorbitantly high price of connectivity that allows for the consumption of a wide range of applications and services required for effective economic participation, has meant that only the privileged mostly established businesses were able to equip themselves with a quality telecoms service. But those days are now over.
The introduction by telecoms company iBurst of its BusinessLink offering – a fixed wireless broadband solution – means that small and medium sized businesses can now also use mobile technologies to connect with customers and grow their businesses at only a fraction of the price.

"ICT services form an extremely important component of our competitve armoury as small and medium sized businesses but the pricing of many of these solutions have effectively made them unaffordable for many of the smaller businesses like mine," said Martin
"This extremely reasonable yet quality offering by iBurst is really a Godsend for some of us and is helping my company in particular to lower overheads and improve efficiencies," he said.
The BusinessLink solution offers SMEs a symmetrical service with speeds of up to 40Mbps and a great quality of service due to the low contention ratio. It is perfectly suited for voice traffic and provides up to five static IP addresses. The end-to-end solution can be installed quickly and efficiently and comes with the benefit of next-day repair on logging of faults.
Tailor-made yet affordable ICT solutions such as these for SMEs by companies like iBurst, are fast changing the face of SMEs in
You too have an opportunity to enjoy the benefits of BusinessLink as Martin does.
