TELECOM Namibia today has announced that it plans to build a fibre-based, mobile and wireless telecommunication infrastructure at Farm Gross Haigamas, 30km south of Windhoek.

Farm Gross Haigamas is a Greenfield development which has been turned into a golf and residential oasis – dubbed ‘Omeya’ - sprawling over 260 hectares beneath the Auas Mountains.

Telecom Namibia will build a WiFi network to ensure wireless coverage throughout the estate and rollout fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) which uses optical cables to deliver ultra-fast broadband and telephone services with network interface speeds of more than 100Mbps.

The telecommunication giant, through its cellular company Leo, will also build a 3G mobile base station at Omeya, which will be complemented with 4G towards the end of this year.

Once complete, the network will offer voice, IP, data, internet, telecommunications services and value added services (VAS) to residents at the Greenfield development.

The combination of FTTH, WiFi and mobile network will give seamless access to all Omeya residents and visitors.

“Although the initial goal is to provide basic WiFi Internet access, we are actually building a high-speed fibre-to-the-home network that will be delivering even more services and applications in the future,” said Heiko Trost, Telecom Namibia’s Chief Commercial Officer.

Trost explained further that the network solutions for Omeya provide the convenience and flexibility of wireless with the power of direct fibre

connection to homes that comes with plenty of performance for more demanding applications such as high speed broadband access and live video surveillance.

Omeya will be connected to Telecom Namibia’s national fibre backbone in a ring protected design towards Windhoek to the north and Rehoboth to the south.

“We plan to deploy fiber high speed solution to help us better position our services against competitive offerings, as well as expand our offering into areas where our competitors are currently lacking,” said Hein Bader, Telecom Namibia‘s Chief Operations Officer. “Our decision to deploy fibre high speed solution is a direct response to customer desire for bandwidth speed and affordability.”

Bader said that the provision of WiFi and fibre high speed solution for Omeya strengthens Telecom Namibia‘s portfolio and aligns with its focus to continuously meet the highest standards of customer satisfaction by constantly improving the capabilities, quality, and delivery of products and services.

“Telecom Namibia is ready to expand its reach to any Greenfield development like Omeya in order to meet customer demands for new solutions,” he added.

The advantages of digital networks have been clearly demonstrated in countries where fiber high speed solution has been in place for some time. There is anecdotal evidence that the presence of high speed broadband and its related services changes people’s lives and enhances the values of properties while also ensuring the rapid sale of properties relative to non-fibre enabled communities.

Telecom Namibia Managing Director Frans Ndoroma received two recently crowned boxing champions at his office in Windhoek today.

The two boxers – Joseph ‘Smokey’ Hilongwa and Albinus ‘Danny-Boy’ Felicianu - recently inspired the country after defeating their challengers in Windhoek on 29 March 2013.

‘Smokey’ won the WBF International Super Flyweight title against the South African Dalisiswe Komani, while ‘Danny-Boy’ defeated Hebert Quartey from Ghana to win the new IBF World Youth Super Featherweight title.

‘Smokey’, who also holds the World Boxing Association (WBA) Africa Flyweight title, won the 12-round bout on a unanimous decision. The judges scored it 118-110, 115-113, 116-112 in his favour.

‘Danny-Boy’ won on points in a 10-round bout. All three judges scored 98-88 in the Namibian’s favour.

Both ‘Smokey’ and ‘Danny-Boy’ were accompanied by their managers/promoters Ludwig Haimbodi of Warriors Promotions and Simon Kinda Nangolo of Kinda Promotions, respectively.

The two boxers, who thanked Telecom Namibia for making the event possible through sponsorship, presented the company’s MD with the gloves they wore in their respective March 29 bouts.

“This [Telecom Namibia] is the house where champions are born. Working with Telecom Namibia more world [boxing] champions are still going to be born,” quipped Nicanor Nakaleke, chairman of Kinda Promotions.

The Telecom MD congratulated the boxers on their latest exploits in the ring, saying, “You fought not only for your own glory, you represented the Telecom Namibia brand in a fitting way, the Namibian flag, and proud that you represent our country so well.”

Ndoroma however cautioned against shady boxing promoters who are out to make a quick buck and congratulated the two boxing stables for a fantastic job that has put the two of pugilists on top of the boxing world and the country 'on the world map' once more.

“We believe boxing has a future; that is why we are sponsoring the game even at the grassroots level,” he said. “There is already a good foundation. If we achieve sustainability [in governance of the business of boxing], the future is bright.”

Ndoroma urged boxing promoters to go out and identify talents among the youth in different communities of the country in order to steel them into national and world champions.

“I am looking forward to again witnessing our champions’ superior firepower, steely determination and gritty spirit in future,” he concluded.

Namibia Albinus Felesianu’s joys was amplified as he was declared the new IBF World Youth Super Featherweight King. His joys was shared by thousands of Namibia boxing stakeholders who flocked in the Windhoek Country Club Resorts and Casino’s auditorium to witness the first ever IBF World Title of its kind on the Namibian soil.

The event was sponsored by Telecom Namibia.

Women, men and children alike jumped to their feet when the ring announcer mentioned Albinus as the new IBF World Youth Super Featherweight Champion and the noises could be heard three kilometers to the city center.

It was a night of big drama as the two pugilists Hebert Quartey from Ghana and Albinus Felesianu engaged on the toe to toe exchange of punched that kept referee Deon Dwarte of South Africa on his fee all the time. Had it not being for Dwarte’s long and excellent experience in the ring as the referee, things could have turned worse as the two pugilists exchanged missiles of punches to each other!

Namibians have just enjoyed the benefits of IBF and nothing would hold them back as they yearn for more IBF titles. The outcome would see several IBF activities in May, June, July, August all the way through to December as boxers are lining up for IBF pie!

This was yet another electrified tournament promoted by Kinda Nangolo of Kinda Boxing Promotions and hosted by the Windhoek Country Club Resort and Casino where it was the center of another high charged IBF International bantamweight Title last week! The end justified the means as Namibian boxing fraternity comes of age with a long list of capable and experienced boxers.

The exciting event could not keep away the Namibian lovable son Harry “The Terminator” Simon who lives a life of undefeated world champion ever come out of Namibia this century.

Harry’s demure and integrity has made Namibia to emerge as the next boxing powerhouse in African continent. This was an excellent event sponsors by Telecom Namibia who have invested a colossal amount of money to promote boxing as a professional sports. It is only true that wherever there is good intention the results are positive and Telecom Namibia lead the way as the sponsorship Gurus in the land!
