    Interesting article, it is very much in line with what Saldanha Bay Municipality (SBM) is doing. We have done several projects in the line of broadband delivery and breaching the digital divide, but we have very quickly realized that the biggest problem is the lack of proper infrastructure and the cost of delivering the service to all the LSM spectrum. I am proud to say that I work for a municipality where we have seen the challenges and realise that it is within our capacity to contribute, therefor we recently launched our Fibre as a fifth utility services. I will post the press release below, but what it boils down to is we will build the fibre network and provide it as an open access network to all services providers that want to offer services in our area. Together with this it gives SBM many value added service opportunities to allow us to become a true smart city, town and community. I will ask Bizcommunity if they will publish our press release as well.
