2 2 VISION DFA will be the leading provider of an “Open Access” Infrastructure, for Dark Fibre Connectivity, in South Africa. BUSINESS STRATEGY AND PHILOSOPHY The underlying business principle is that of an Independent “Open Access” Infrastructure. DFA will always be Competition-Neutral providing a Ducting Infrastructure that is “Open” to all licensed players, on equal terms.

3 3 The Vision of “Open Access” “Why build several highways?” One infrastructure for everyone to use on an equal basis “Open Access” for all, ensures lower cost of entry to new service providers City managers more receptive to requests to trench within the city limits Speeds up time to market and revenue generation Service Providers have access to unlimited bandwidth enabling the introduction of advanced services More service providers and better communications bring more investment and economic growth to the specific regions

4 4 Fibre Optic Cable – Key Pointers Secure Data Virtually Unlimited Bandwidth Equipment Agnostic Equipment Resilient Extended Lifecycle – 20 – 25 Years Requires Trained Operation and Maintenance Personnel Installation -- Important to Comply with Manufacturers Recommendations Requires a Secure Tamper Proof Environment
