Liquid Telecom on Thursday revealed that it is activating 82 kilometres of fibre in a cross-border network into Botswana.
This expansion connects the Lobatse Border to Gaborone with intent to create efficient mobility and connectivity in Botswana, said the company, a leading communications solutions provider across 13 countries primarily in Eastern and Southern Africa.
It serves mobile operators, carriers, enterprises, media and content companies and retail customers with high-speed connectivity, hosting and co-location and digital services.
“At Liquid Telecom, we have a proven track record of investing in and deploying technology designed to grow, strengthen and build Africa’s digital future. This expansion into Botswana is yet another proof point that shows our deep commitment to this practice,” said Odirile Tamajobe, Managing Director of Liquid Telecom Botswana.
“We know that fibre is key to providing Africa with high-speed, affordable digital connectivity and have plans to create even more valuable connections throughout the continent.”
Prior to this fibre implementation, Liquid Telecom Botswana did not have a cross-border connectivity network. With this link going live, the organisation has started making inroads to establish itself as a dominant presence in Botswana and provide businesses and consumers with greater reach and network speeds across the country.
