Angola Cables and Camtel team up on connectivity

31 May 2024

Angola Cables is partnering with Camtel to expand digital and connectivity services in Cameroon and the West Africa region.

The agreement follows an intent by both parties to develop business opportunities in West Africa and the Atlantic region to boost redundancy, network resilience and the quality of services (QoS) both nationally and internationally. Taking advantage of the subsea cable connections of SACS, WACS, and Monet within the robust backhaul network of Angola Cables – and the added connectivity provided by Camtel on the South Atlantic Inter Link (SAIL), businesses and enterprises will have extended capacity options with a better traffic access to West Africa local and regional networks through Angola Cables and Camtel’s Points of Presence (PoPs).

“Our strategic intent is to build on the robust backhaul connectivity of the Angola Cables network, and the existing interconnections we have in place with other submarine cables connecting the region and the world, to provide flexible and secure value added services for our clients and businesses,” said Judith Yah Sunday Epse Achidi, CEO, CAMTEL.

“The agreement signifies an important step in advancing telecoms and digital connectivity in Africa,” said Fernando Fernandes, country manager, TelCables Nigeria, a subsidiary of Angola Cables. “For users, it will help to secure connectivity, trade, boost economies and help expand as well as grow businesses across the region.”
