Angola’s newest operator Africell will use wholesale IP transit and connectivity solutions from Angola Cables.
The partnership will give Africell customers high speed data, low latency and nationwide internet access through the advanced Angola Cables infrastructure. This robust network currently connects to Angola’s primary IXP, Angonix, and provides backhaul support and connectivity to all the major telecom operators in Angola and internationally.
Angelo Gama, CEO of Angola Cables said: “The flexible yet secure nature of the Angola Cables’ network and our established Points of Presence (PoPs) and peering agreements offer efficient broadband access to Africell, enabling its rapid expansion of mobile services across Angola”.
Christopher Lundh, CEO of Africell Angola, added that the partnership with Angola Cables is an important step in providing secure data and internet access and ensuring uninterrupted local connectivity: “Fast and reliable connectivity will be essential as we build our Angolan customer base and bring much needed innovation to the Angolan telecoms sector”.
