Webafrica was founded in 1997 - we’re ancient in internet years! We’ve been around the block and we’re here to stay.
We’re not a fancy ‘start-up’ and we can’t remember if we were born in a garage. We have done all sorts of internet things along the way but now we just focus on what we’re best at, getting all South Africans online with increasingly fast internet and giving them a great experience once they get there.
We were born in Cape Town and in 2016, we also opened a Joburg office but we’re now on the forefront of the working-from-home business model as we were the first ISP in the country to move fully remote in May 2022.
We’ve got more than 150,000 customers and we’re growing so fast that someone should probably get fired for not updating the figure by the time you read this.
We’ve got a small Board and a Shareholder group with no boring institutional investors to slow us down. Our Board members have all been founders/CEOs of successful businesses, locally and internationally including: Storm Telecom, Teraco, Smartcom, Host Europe Group.
We are cooking with gas, or we would be, if gas wasn’t so old school. Webafrica is all about effing fast internet. Like FAST. We love it. We love doing everything online from streaming movies to submitting our tax returns, if it’s on the net we are THERE (like a bear, only faster, so maybe like a cheetah, with roller skates, and a jetpack).
We hate waiting around, too. We only do internet. Fast. Nothing else.
