TechInAfrica – Liquid Telecom activates its 82 km of fiber in a cross-border network in Botswana. This fiber activation connects Lobatse Border to Gaborone with the purpose to create efficient mobility and connectivity in Botswana.
Odirile Tamajobe, MD of Liquid Telecom Botswana said that Liquid Telecom has an impressive track record that is proven by investing and spreading technology created to grow, strengthen and build Africa’s digital future. The Liquid Telecom expansion to Botswana is another evidence that shows its commitment to this work.
Liquid Telecom knows that the key to providing high-speed, affordable digital connectivity for African is fiber. It also has plans to design even more valuable connections throughout the African countries.
Liquid Telecom Botswana did not have a cross-border connectivity network before the implementation of this fiber network. Now, Liquid Telecom has begun to create encroachment to set up itself as the dominant presence in Botswana and bring a greater and fast network for businesses and consumers across the country.
According to Wellington Makamure, CEO of Liquid Telecom Southern Africa, fiber technology symbolizes digital development in many countries of the African continent. Only fiber can bring the connectivity that allows Africans to know what Liquid Telecom calls ‘the real internet’.
The high-definition entree to digital media is almost impossible for any family or businesses unless they are connected to the high-speed fiber network. Trusted and fast connectivity is significant to grow the economy of a country by opening doors to e-commerce and other global digital chances. Liquid Telecom is proud of its role in this journey in Botswana.
Liquid Telecom is also focusing on the growth in the Southern Africa region, alongside Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zambia.
