Liquid Telecom has announced that it is planning to invest USD 34 million in Rwanda. The investment forms part of the company’s USD 200 million Africa expansion plans.
Sam Nkusi, Liquid Telecom Rwanda CEO, stated that: “The money will be used to build internet infrastructure such as laying of fibre-optic cable around the country.”
“So far, we have already laid 46km of underground fiber optic cable in Kigali. Where we haven’t reached, we lease from the government some of the ducts on a long-term basis. Rwanda is key in connecting East and Central African capitals with route diversity and reliability,” he added.
According to the company, Liquid Telecom is looking to position itself as the leading independent data, voice and IP provider in eastern, southern and central Africa.
