The 21st century preaches about innovation impacted by several tech giant partisans’ campaigns of adopting and applying emerging technology to alter business development. The MTN Group has consented to innovate up to ten markets in Africa where the telecom giant currently operates to be connected with the in-house fibre cable – a high-end telecommunication broadband technology.
The telecom giant targets the populous countries in Africa to expand its operational growth and likewise expand its brand by selling high-end broadband connections. MTN Group schemes to connect East Africa to the Western region of the continent with the fibre cable which gives the telecom giant the verge to compete for rivalry with Google’s Equiano subsea fibre cable connected to significant markets across Africa.
The telecom giant’s GlobalConnect division rebranded as Bayobab will lead the fibre cable installation in the selected marketplace recognized with a massive population to alter revenue growth. According to the telecom giant report, MTN Bayobab will pair up with the continental infrastructure investment agency, Africa50 to commence connecting the targeted market to the telecom giant fibre cable network.
MTN Group also reported that the communed operations with the infrastructure investment agency are committed to collaborating with the telecom giant and rather not compete which regresses status growth. “The project will add about 20 000km of new cable and interconnect over 100 000km of fibre.” The telecom giant said that the cables will be coming from the East since it’s close to Europe and connect to the rest of MTN’s significant market.
The Middle East and the European region are quite fit for distributing fibre cable to the rest of Africa. This has been in the telecom giant’s project/budget cache that previously consented to aid Google with the Equiano subsea cable installation in Cape Town late last year as part of a push to interconnect the continent.
The collaboration between the telecom giant and the Search giant could have worked out but the telecom group needed inland cables to connect landlocked countries, unlike the undersea systems that bring fast broadband to coastal cities. Africa needs at least 500 000km fibre cables connected to the operation market, Techbooky Africa writes.
