The network currently covers Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Maputo, Johannesburg, Cape Town, as well as other cities.
“This partnership is a strong endorsement of the quality of the network we have built and a clear step forwards in our mission to connect all Nigerians with each other, and with the rest of the world,” said Stanley Jegede, Phase3 Telecom chief executive officer.
Jegede added that the deal will enable Phase3 Telecom to expand their business and offer better services.
“PCCW Global’s extensive network provides us with an unrivalled offering for corporate and institutional clients looking for a truly global solution, locally. We will continue to expand our West African network, and diversify our business with additional products distributed through our infrastructure.”
James Welch, PCCW global vice president and head of sales in emerging economies concluded that it will provide better communication services in Nigeria.
“PCCW Global is keen to explore new opportunities with Phase3 Telecom, as our collaboration opens up new connectivity in West Africa. We are looking at facilitating improved communications for Nigerian businesses and beyond, thanks to our cost-effective and reliable communications solutions.”
