TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) and Angola Cables have announced an IP Transit agreement to improve regional Internet connectivity across West Africa
IP Transit, also known as Internet connectivity, gives a high speed access to the global Internet. According to the agreement, Angola Cables will invest in infrastructure, which will help address the growing demand for Internet access across the African continent.
“Angola is one of the fastest developing economies of the continent and has the potential to become the leading telecoms and technology hub for Africa. This latest deal is one more step towards realising the vision of making Angola an African telecommunications hub,” said Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables.
TSIC said in a statement that the agreement will improve Internet performance as well as reduce transport costs for global connectivity to western Africa.
Christoph Lannert, director of channel management in TSIC, said, “We are very pleased to increase global-local connectivity in western Africa by welcoming Angola Cables on board and to jointly strengthen high performance Internet access in the region.”
