CMC is a Global Telecommunications Carrier, providing services for over 3 decades, serving the data communications needs of wholesale carriers and government clients across the globe. Founded in 1989, by local entrepreneur, Grant Walker, its evolution over the years has been vast and ever adherent to fluctuating expectations.

The transaction value exceeded $100 million (R1.4 billion).
