Liquid Telecom has revealed the latest expansion of its FTTH network in Zimbabwe. Liquid Telecom has already laid fibre rings around Victoria Falls, which provide multiple routes of redundancy.
It is now starting to lay fibre to homes and businesses in the town over which the Fibroniks service will be offered by ZOL Zimbabwe, which is part of The Liquid Telecom Group. Fibroniks is already available in Harare. Unlimited data packages with speeds of up to 100Mbps will be offered at a fixed monthly price, including landlines.
Outside Zimbabwe, Liquid Telecom has launched its FTTH service in Zambia; however, plans are now underway to launch FTTH in Kenya, Rwanda and two undisclosed countries shortly.
According to Liquid Telecom, the Fibroniks service enables people to participate in, and benefit from, the digital revolution. The company stated that Fibroniks helps small and medium sized businesses to serve customers in a global market, trading worldwide without limits. It enables SMEs to utilise modern business tools to increase efficiency such as cloud-based services, online backups, video conferencing and OTT services.
For home users, Fibroniks means people can use multiple devices at the same time with no buffering or delay and access enhanced home entertainment like video on demand decoders, smart TV and connected home security systems.
Liquid Telecom’s CEO Nic Rudnick said “This is an exciting day for the people of Victoria Falls. Fibroniks is what we refer to as “The Real Internet”, a sophisticated superfast service which transforms how people access and share information. A Fibroniks connection provides endless possibilities for everyone using it and will revolutionise how homes and businesses are connected to the rest of the world. We are an ambitious and innovative organisation which will continue to invest in building Africa’s digital future.”
