Our integrated network enables customers all over the world to communicate efficiently with the most remote African outposts. We have more direct connections to Africa’s mobile operators than any other carrier, enabling us to carry in excess of 10% of sub-Saharan Africa’s international telephone calls (excluding South Africa).
Our existing proven solutions include cellular backhaul networks, which are especially valuable to mobile communications and Voice-over-IP (VoIP) operations. These are delivered using satellite and wireless technologies where terrestrial connectivity is not available or would take too long to deploy.
Connectivity between Africa and the rest of the world is achieved via our fully diversified backbone with east and west submarine interconnectivity into our global network via – WACS, SEACOM, SAT3, Glo1, MAIN ONE, TEAMS, SEACOM, EASSY, SAFE.
Our excellent reputation for outstanding customer service has been built up over 20 years with experienced people on the ground in South Africa and Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana and Uganda.
