Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment

eNetworks started in 1999 and is currently in its 19th year of operation; functioning as a fixed line ISP and networking specialist we have consistently "punched above our weight" maintaining an impressive client base of major local and global players. Growth has been impressive 30% year on year in a market that is undisputedly one of the most competitive of all. Growth has been organic and by word of mouth - eNetworks only hired its first sales representative in 2007.

In August 2013 eNetworks was acquired by Datacentrix, a leading systems integrator and solutions provider in the ICT market, thereby growing and enhancing its cloud computing capabilities. The Acquisition provides Datacentrix access to highly skilled resources, electronic communications networks and licences, strengthening Datacentrix’ capability to build, operate and provide network services.
