According to the company, Tunisia’s Telnet Holding and Soteltel also announced that their network engineering joint venture in Algeria with DB Algeria has “more than doubled revenues sequentially in the third quarter.”

DB Algeria is a specialist in fixed and mobile broadband access deployments using fiber optic networks and IP-MSAN technologies.

The Algerian subsidiary said it “will hire another 25 staff by the end of the year.”

A delegation hosted by Algeria’s Telecommunications Minister Moussa Ben Hamadi, heard that he “would give all necessary support to help DB Algeria grow and strengthen its operations.”

He also encouraged other Algerian and Tunisian ICT companies to work together.

North Africa is moving swiftly on developing its telecom sector and the hope with this continued partnership is that it will give users in Algeria the ability to connect quicker and have more uptime in the future.
