Amobia is an open unlicensed spectrum solution for business wireless – symmetric and high-speed last-mile connectivity for voice, video, and data traffic. This service is ideal where other last-mile access options have been exhausted, or as a redundancy option. It provides a symmetric 1:1 layer 2 connection, in the 5.8GHz ISM band, and offering 99.7% availability with the paid-for “Bronze” service level agreement (SLA). Amobia provides coverage in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth – subject to line of sight survey, naturally.

How It Works


Quick installation and upgrades

RapidNet offers clients faster installation times than traditional serial-based technology, and upgrades to speed can be implemented on the day of request.

Service guaranteed

Service level agreements (SLAs) ensure 99.5% up-time in a calendar month, for links within the metro. Plus: two-hour on-site response, and a further two hours to repair.

No contention

RapidNet has managed and controlled contention ratios, so you get dedicated end-to-end capacity, with no sharing between customers.

Rack space and router

Along with your RapidNet connection, Y2K can also provide the required router with an Ethernet interface, and 2U of rack space.

Frequently Asked Questions

It is provided over the 5.8 GHz unlicensed band.

Yes. 1:1 dedicated that can be coupled with dedicated bandwidth.

Yes. Five usable static IPs with the router rental.

This is a question with a very complex answer. What one must first note is that the factor with the highest impact on services is interference. This is affected by whether a link is run on licensed or unlicensed band, i.e. regulated by ICASA or not and of course links in the surrounding area. Then the question of weather can be answered: the higher the GHz the higher the impact. Atmospheric conditions start to impact, if at all, spectrums at 7GHz and higher. On the contrary to this, your licensed spectrums tend to be a higher frequency but tend to provide you with carrier-grade technology with built in adaptive modulation to specifically combat issues such as weather. Again, the most relevant factor remains interference.
