Cabo Verde Telecom collaborates with Angola Cables on connectivity expansion

The goal of the agreement is to improve telecommunications infrastructure and services in the African continent.

Praia-based Cabo Verde Telecom (CVTelecom) and Angola Cables have signed an agreement to identify synergies to expand connectivity and network capabilities.

As part of the strategic partnership, the two will foster closer commercial cooperation in the development of customised networking products and solutions.

The SACS, WACS, MONET and EllaLink subsea cables will form part of the strategic plan to offer multiple connectivity and redundancy routing options between Africa, Europe and the Americas at low latencies on these express routes.

Commenting on the partnership, Angelo Gama, CEO of Angola Cables, said: “The agreement will pave the way for improving telecommunications infrastructure and services in the region and will ultimately make a positive contribution towards improving digital transformation on the African continent. Several commercial synergies have been identified to enable better routes and access to multiple, low-latency network links between Cape Verde and Angola and unlock business opportunities on the West African coast, from Senegal to Angola.”

João Domingos Correia, Board Chairman of CVTelecom, added: “This agreement is an important instrument in our internationalisation strategy as it opens doors to access the markets of Southern Africa and the United States of America. In addition, the agreement will ensure the availability of communications via the redundancy and low latency of the cable system network in the mid-Atlantic.”
