In 2011 XDSL came to market 14 years ago

A New Breed of ISP - we have the backbone, the ingenuity and the service ethic.

XDSL came to market 14 years ago with resources that boasted leading-edge technological expertise and a great deal of experience in broadband enablement in international markets. We have taken an innovative approach to the development of our offerings, leveraging the strengths of formidable partners to create a national footprint for XDSL accompanied by a high-level national skillset. To our partner companies abilities to build data centres, provide support and services  and deliver countrywide network implementation and Cisco Gold partner support, we add ingenuity to deliver the best possible network, hosting and communications value proposition to our clients.

The Two Most Vital Components of our Offering

  1. A national operations centre that provides 24/7/365 network monitoring and support; and
  2. The partnerships we have built over the last 12 years


To deliver services to our clients, XDSL makes use of a shared IP network reaching across metro networks, carrier networks, ISPs and data-hosting centres with the help of the fibre, 3G, copper and wireless infrastructure of the multiple service providers with which we has peering agreements and back-to-back SLAs. This includes all the major ISPs, fixed and cellular service providers, as well as niche ISPs providing fibre to select clients (e.g., high density office parks).

In total, XDSL now has access to more than 200 000km of fibre through its agreements with various carriers, with dedicated links to all major fibre rings.

To access, XDSL adds service. Our offering, based on network neutrality, offers some relief from standard responses and best-effort resolution. We deliver on our throughput promises. We are changing the rules of engagement in this sector in South Africa by setting new standards for value delivery. Technology is advancing every day and XDSL is dedicated to putting its technical capabilities to work to ensure its customers gain maximum value and business advantage.
