About Us

A brief history of how we started

Commco Holdings was created in 2012 when Waterfall Estate was being developed into the largest property development in South African history.

Commco is responsible to manage and deploy telecommunication infrastructure on the Estate to ensure aesthetically pleasing structures are built and the infrastructure supports an open access model.

Commco has successfully constructed over 95 free standing towers throughout South Africa. They are occupied by ECNS licencees such as Vodacom, MTN, Cell C and Telkom.

 

Commco and it's subsidiary companies also manage Lease Agreements of around 400 towers throughout South Africa.

Commco has a close working relationship with Waterfall Access Networks (WAN), which company currently manages the entire Waterfall City from a fibre optic perspective.

Commco is a company with expertise in the deployment and management of telecommunication facilities.
