Liquid Telecom, Sudatel partner for FTTH rollout in Sudan

28 Feb 2018

Pan-African telecoms company Liquid Telecom has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Sudatel Telecom Group for the deployment of new fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) networks across Sudan. Comparable to similar networks deployed in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya and Rwanda by Liquid Telecom, the new FTTH networks will deliver speeds initially up to 100Mbps for business and residential customers. ‘Liquid Telecom has a proven track record of bringing world-class fibre networks to previously underserved regions of Africa,’ commented Nic Rudnick, Group CEO of Liquid Telecom, adding: ‘We are delighted to support Sudatel with its efforts to deliver leading FTTH services to more businesses and consumers in Sudan, which will help grow the country’s digital economy.’ Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, has deployed a fibre network spanning over 50,000km in Eastern, Southern and Central Africa.
