Dec. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Multichoice-owned Smart Village, specialising in large-scale deployments of high-capacity “Fibre-to-the-Home” multi-service networks, has announced the successful installation of an optical fibre network along Victoria road, Clifton.

Not only will residents in one of South Africa’s most beautiful and opulent areas on the Atlantic Seaboard now enjoy clear DSTV, but also a range of value added services, such as telco-grade VOIP telephony services, high speed broadband access, and the ability to carry any IP signal, including CCTV and access control services.

According to Smart Village MD, Chris van der Walt, Clifton was one of the only urban suburbs in South Africa where residents have experienced poor satellite reception.  “Due to the suburb’s location and the influence of the mountain, the DStv satellite signal strength to many homes in this area was varied and certainly not at the quality that Multichoice strives to maintain.   As a result, the decision was taken to install a centralised satellite head end to distribute digital signal over fibre to homes connected to our Clifton network”, Van der Walt says.

Smart Village has been assisting home owners in residential estates as well as businesses in corporate office parks to future proof their homes and companies, through consultation, recommendation and installation of the latest in FTTx technology.  “The technology we have developed and deployed to create truly integrated and connected homes around the country has helped us present a much needed and long awaited solution to Clifton residents”, Van der Walt says.

Reacting to this announcement, said Clifton building manager Mike Miller, “We are very pleased that we are now finally able to receive satellite television as well as the host of other services thanks to the world leading technology installed.  We have been hoping that a solution will be offered for a long time now and applaud DStv’s initiative.  Allowing us to now also enjoy improved security and internet access to boot makes up for the many years of frustration we’ve had to endure and adds even more value to our properties and is a welcome and much appreciated early Christmas present”.

Clifton residents are invited to contact Smart Village on 086 010 4669 or via email at  to find out more about availability of the network reach and services.
