Media Alert: Premier Zille to Officially Open BT's International Routing Facility at Melkbosstrand
Tomorrow, Western Cape Premier Helen Zille will join BT Global Services South Africa to officially open BT's new infrastructure within the Melkbosstrand landing station collocation facility in the Western Cape.
This is the first step of a series of investments being considered in South Africa that allows BT to deliver wholly owned international capacity into the region to serve our corporate and wholesale customers better. Without this key development at the landing station, additional terrestrial fibre investments would prove to be pointless.
Premier Zille will officially open the facility (a ribbon cutting) and will deliver a short speech on telecommunications investment in the Western Cape and its impact on call centres and job creation.
Date: 23 August 2011
Time: 13:00 to 14:00
Venue: Melkbosstrand Exchange, Cnr 15th Ave and Mostert Str, Melkbosstrand
