Botswana’s national telecoms infrastructure company BoFiNet says it has completed a BWP300,000 (USD29,000) network expansion which has seen it deploy more than 1,000km of new fibre backbone network. In October 2014 the government-owned firm awarded contracts for three rollout projects: the 360km Sekoma-Tsabong link was deployed by Dimension Data; the 325km Sehithwa-Mohembo project was handed to Complant Botswana and Mepi Building Construction; and the 362km Maun-Ngoma optical fibre project was carried out by Four Arrows and Echoes Holdings. As part of the upgrade work BoFiNet has also constructed metro rings in Maun and Kasane. ITWebAfrica quotes Thato Jensen, Strategy & Business Development Executive at BoFiNet, as saying that the project will widen broadband connectivity and enable BoFiNet customers to provide products and services countrywide at competitive and affordable prices.
