Liquid Telecom has launched the fastest direct land-based fibre link connecting East to West Africa.
This breakthrough coast-to-coast digital corridor follows the completion of Liquid Telecom’s new high-capacity fibre link running 2 600-km across the Democratic Republic of Congo.
This expansion connects millions of DRC citizens and thousands of businesses to Liquid Telecom’s “One Africa” broadband network linking the African continent to the rest of the world.
This will help to create a foundation for social mobility, economic diversification and private sector-led growth both in the DRC and more widely across Africa.
It also underscores the company’s commitment to bring high-speed connectivity to every African on the continent.
“Liquid Telecom has connected East to West Africa with the most direct digital corridor across the southern hemisphere. We have set a new benchmark and achieved a historic milestone in our vision to create a more connected Africa,” said Nic Rudnick, Group CEO, Liquid Telecom.
