Frogfoot uses PR to highlight differentiators in competitive FNO market

Frogfoot 12 Month Annual Review

Frogfoot Networks is a licensed open access fibre network provider. With 15 years’ experience in the telecoms industry and widely acknowledged for their technical excellence, Frogfoot intends to play a pivotal role in the growth of fibre to the business and home in South Africa.

Funded by Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), Investec and Metier Capital, group revenue exceeding R1 billion per annum, and one of the only true open access wholesale fibre network offerings in the market, Frogfoot is well positioned to build and maintain fibre networks that will enable service providers to acquire their own fibre backbones on a shared network.

Challenge

Frogfoot Networks approached DUO looking to differentiate their brand in the fibre network operator (FNO) market and position themselves as an open access partner of choice to local internet service providers (ISPs). This included raising awareness of the work they are doing to provide internet services to people in not just South Africa’s metropolitan areas, but also in secondary cities and smaller towns, and highlighting investments in their network through purchases of additional fibre cables, as well as putting in place additional backhaul capacity and power options to combat load shedding.
