Telkom is Africa’s largest integrated communications company, providing integrated communications solutions to an entire range of customers. Telkom’s passion is to become world-class. In this section you will find detailed company information, investment opportunities and an insight into Telkom’s community upliftment programs.
On starting out 19 years ago, Telkom was essentially a South African telephone company. Then, as the country underwent profound transformation, so did Telkom.
After digitising and modernising the network, we opened our Network Operations Centre to monitor and manage it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Then we branched out into internet services, managed data networking, data hosting, IT security and virtual private network services.
We worked hard to improve operating efficiencies and cost-effectiveness and, most importantly, the quality of the customer experience. At the same time, Telkom became â€“ and remains – one of South Africa’s most demographically representative companies and biggest investors in ICT skills development.
Our core strategy is to defend and grow profitable revenue, while managing costs. We will seek to defend profitable revenue by providing superior, customised solutions that meet the needs of consumer, business and wholesale customers. We will pursue growth of profitable revenue through fixed-wireless and mobile data services, broadband services and converged services both in South Africa and internationally. We will seek to grow both organically as well as through partnerships and acquisitions, while managing costs.
Telkom concluded the disposal and sale of Vodacom, its mobile segment that provided mobile services through its 50% joint venture interest in Vodacom, effective as of 20 April 2009. This transaction enables us to execute our strategies in the areas of mobile services, integrated solutions and the provision of converged fixed-line, mobile and data solutions. The deal also frees the Company from the geographic limitations previously imposed by the shareholder’s agreement with Vodafone.
To further support our ability to maintain our leadership position in South Africa while building a strong footprint on the continent, we have embarked upon a process renewal – in essence, a complete transformation of the way we focus on servicing our customers and creating value for our stakeholders.
