HeroTel has bought another wireless Internet service provider (WISP) in Mpumalanga, purchasing Hi-Tech Wireless (Hitech) for an undisclosed amount.
Hitech was founded in 2010 by brothers Wimpie, Hannes and Jannie Venter, and is based in Middelburg, Mpumalanga. Its coverage extends from Middelburg to Emalahleni (Witbank) and the surrounding rural towns. HeroTel already has two other WISPs in the region: Bronbergwisp based in Tshwane and Xpress Network Solutions in Nelspruit.
“Hitech is a strategic acquisition for us, in that it neatly fills the gap between our two regional WISPs,” HeroTel CEO Corne de Villiers told ITWeb exclusively.
“We see Middelburg and Emalahleni as fantastic growth areas and we wanted a strong local presence, right in the heart of the action there. When we met the Venters, we knew that we had found the right partners to achieve this goal,” adds De Villiers.
Hitech GM Wimpie Venter says the WISP has enjoyed rapid growth over the past few years.
“Middelburg is booming, but we have not managed to scale at the rate that we could have with an experienced partner. HeroTel brings management, capital and technical skills that will ensure even faster growth, while keeping our clients happy.
