Profile

SENTECH is a South African-based digital infrastructure and content delivery company providing services in South Africa and across the African continent.

SENTECH has an extensive, strategically positioned infrastructure giving coverage to more than 80% of the South African population. This infrastructure gives SENTECH the ability to offer facility leasing and co-location on our masts, and our site location enables us to provide connectivity and infrastructure services to the retail, Telcos, and public sectors. We provide broadcast transmission services to all commercial and public broadcasters, including daily service to over 150 community radio stations countrywide.

As holder of both an Individual Electronic Communications Network Services (I-ECNS) licence and an Individual Electronic Communications Services (I-ECS) licence, the Company can provide both voice-based telecommunications, broadband and multimedia services.

SENTECH provides the following solutions and services:
