CEC Liquid Telecom Launches FTTH in Zambia

CEC-Liquid-Telecom-Launches-FTTH-in-ZambiaCEC Liquid Telecom has launched Fibroniks, FTTH service over which homes and businesses of all sizes can access superfast broadband with unlimited data packages in Zambia.

Fibroniks will provide speeds of up to 100 Mbps, the fastest broadband ever available in Zambia and indeed throughout Africa. It will provide Zambians with the real Internet enabling businesses to use cloud-based services as well as video conferencing based on OTT services, like Skype. For home users, Fibroniks enables the whole family to be online at the same time using multiple devices.

Fibroniks is initially available to around 8,000 homes and businesses in Lusaka including the areas of Rhodes Park, Northmead, Long Acres, Sunningdale and Kabulonga.

This year, CEC Liquid Telecom will invest around $15 million in its FTTH build, which will continue indefinitely and is expected to reach 20,000 premises in Lusaka by year-end. The Fibroniks service will become available as each targeted area is connected with a likelihood that the build will extend to Copperbelt towns by the end of the year.

Andrew Kapula, managing director, CEC Liquid Telecom said, “This is a major milestone in the development of Zambia’s telecoms infrastructure. We believe in the power of connectivity to change lives and will continue to invest in building a high-quality network which will enable our people and businesses to prosper.”

CEC Liquid Telecom is a joint venture between The Liquid Telecom Group and Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC), a Zambian power generation, transmission and distribution company. Its nationwide fibre network is the first fully-redundant network in Zambia, providing SLAs at a level not previously experienced in the country.
