Iain Stevenson Founder and CEO at Comsol Networks


Iain Stevenson founded Communication Solutions (Pty) Ltd (Comsol) in 1997 after identifying a gap in the fledgling wireless telecommunications market in South Africa. As CEO, he has subsequently grown the company from a small, single regional business to an accredited market leader in the wireless telecommunications industry in South Africa.  Originally specialising in building customised terrestrial wireless access infrastructure for companies, government entities and parastatals of all sizes, across all sectors, Comsol has become the pre-eminent provider of licensed point-to-multipoint wireless last mile solutions that rival fibre.  Iain’s entrepreneurial and visionary flair has led Comsol into the era of 5G leveraging the 28GHz spectrum assets Comsol owns.  Comsol is the only company in Africa to have an ongoing live 5G trial being used by businesses and the public alike.
