South Africa is experiencing a boom in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry. According to ICASA’s latest, The State of the ICT Sector Report in South Africa the total revenue reported for the telecommunications, broadcasting, and postal sectors increased by 4.61% from R243.6 billion in 2021 to R254.8 billion in 2022. And this is despite the spike in load-shedding.
While this is great news for those in the ICT sector, it does also mean that competition is now fierce. Businesses are looking for suppliers who can offer innovative solutions that meet the increasing demands of local clients. This requires partnerships with a reputable ICT supplier like ECN (Electronic Communications Network) – a leading communications provider in South Africa.
“ECN is a trusted and preferred partner and wholesaler in the reseller and channel market for over 18 years and offers multiple white label business models as well as dynamic, flexible, and scalable solutions for clients of all sizes to suit the various requirements in the ICT / Communications market.

“Modern business is completely reliant on digital communications and there can be no room for error when it comes to quality products and reliable networks,” explained Maggs Moonsamy, Chief Sales Officer of ECN. “We currently have around 30 000 clients and resellers simply because we’re the strongest indirect communications provider in South Africa. We boast a 99.9% network uptime and are completely unique in the South African market. In this challenging economic environment, it’s vital that ICT companies are partnering with the best in the business.”
