New ADSL and 10Mbps Exchanges Since May

Previously exchange enablement was covered for the period of 26th May till the 10th of July [1]. Since that update nearly a month has passed; have Telkom continued their rapid 10Mbps ADSL enablement and have any new exchanges been enabled for ADSL, Rynsoord for instance?

ADSL Enablement

Since the 27th of May 7 new exchanges have been marked as enabled for ADSL [1]. At the moment approximately 1 exchange is enabled every week. At this rate it will take 479 weeks to enable all South African exchanges, in other words just over 9 years!

10Mbps Enablement

Since the 27th of May 60 new exchanges have been marked as enabled for 10Mbps ADSL [1]. This brings the total number of 10Mbps enabled exchangs to 163 (11%). This roughly corresponds to 1 exchange a day. At this rate to enable all the current ADSL exchanges with 10Mbps functionality will take 2 years.
