@lantic, a subsidiary of Vox Telecom Limited since 2005, is a South African-originated telecommunications operator, providing voice and data services to the South African consumer and SME markets. @lantic has been trading locally since 1996 and has since grown into one of the largest independent service providers in South Africa with a customer base of over 120 000 subscribers.[1]

@lantic is a franchise driven business with a national footprint of over 90 franchises and more than 500 second tier resellers throughout the 9 provinces of South Africa.[1]

History[edit]

@lantic was founded in January 1996 by Neels Fourie.

Social investment[edit]

In partnership with local South African communities, @lantic hosts a sevens rugby series for schools. It is aimed at the development of the youth through sport and with this sport receiving Olympic status from 2016, it acts as a formal pathway for schoolboys to progress to the South African national sevens rugby team. The series offers the opportunity for small rural schools to compete against large urban schools, which is not possible in other competitions.
