Main One, Phase3 team up to boost broadband availability

29 Nov 2012

Main One Cable Company has announced that it has formed a business partnership with Phase3 Telecom to increase penetration of broadband internet in Nigeria and West Africa by bringing affordable services to the region. Under the partnership, the pair will offer Nigerians high capacity broadband services using Phase3 Telecom’s aerial fibre network and Main One’s bandwidth deployed through its undersea cable. The partnership requires the integration of the pair’s networks and collaboration in provisioning and service delivery. According to Funke Opeke, CEO of Main One Cable Company, the fibre infrastructure of both companies will broaden the reach of broadband Internet connectivity. ‘It is necessary at this point for excellent broadband internet services to be available to all businesses that require the capacity that Main One brings to Nigeria,’ she said, adding: ‘This is the reason we have sought to distribute more of our capacity inland, especially across business areas in Lagos and beyond where demand for broadband is the driving force of successful businesses and economic growth and transformation.’ Main One owns and operates an undersea cable system that runs from Europe to Africa with landing points along the West African coast including Nigeria and Ghana, while Phase3 Telecom is a national long-distance operator and owns an aerial fibre-optic cable deployed on high-voltage electricity power lines.
