Broadband connectivity provider Paratus Africa has increased Zambia’s data capacity through the activation of the trans-Kalahari fiber optic network.

The US $ 14 million infrastructure connects the West Africa Submarine Cable System (WACS) landing station at Swakopmund to the Namibian border at Sesheke in passing through the capital Lusaka.

Paratus Zambia’s country director, Marius van Vuuren, explained that with the trans-kalahari fiber optic network connected to Namibia’s backhaul network, we are now able to offer more options to our customers. The group being able to provide backhaul, urban and various access options, we are more competitive and better prepared to serve our pan-African customers . 

According to him, this project will distinguish them from their competitors and allow Paratus Africa to strengthen its position on the market of quality connectivity in Africa.

Currently, Zambia is the first country to take advantage of the trans-kalahari fiber optic network within the Paratus Africa group. The company plans to bring the data capacity of this telecom infrastructure in the city of Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
