DRC- Leading pan-African technology group Liquid Intelligent Technologies has announced the launch of its shortest terrestrial fiber route between the East to the West coasts of Africa, connecting Mombasa, Kenya to Muanda, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The new route will also serve tens of millions of people in Africa’s landlocked cities, towns, and villages.
Access to high-speed connectivity is vital to ensuring that organizations on the continent can continue their digital transformation journeys to remain relevant and be part of this growing digital economy.
This digital corridor passes through 847 cities, towns and villages, impacting more than 138 million people and is also a direct route between South-East Asia and the Americas.
According to David Eurin, CEO, International Wholesale, Liquid Intelligent Technologies, “The current need for reliable connectivity between Asia and USA is booming. Adding this corridor to our network will help organizations avoid the Red Sea and Europe routes as they have become bottlenecks for global Internet traffic. Also, this new fiber network addresses demand in landlocked countries in Africa as more businesses expand their operations within and beyond African borders.”
In addition to available capacities between 1 Mbps to 100Gbps, Liquid will provide its customers access to all digital services in its stable, including data center co-location, cloud, and Cyber Security services. These services are the foundations for digital growth and innovation across the region.
The introduction of this route will allow global carriers and content providers to transmit through Africa to other global points of presence at the lowest possible latencies.
Establishing a new corridor further reiterates Liquid’s commitment to connect every country on the continent and bring the many proven economic benefits of improved connectivity and technology solutions.
