JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – CUSTOMERS of the MTN Group and Liquid Telecom are set to benefit from a larger connectivity footprint across Africa following a partnership between the two firms.

They have partnered to jointly offer customers access to the largest fixed and wireless footprint across the continent.

The partnership, which covers wholesale, carrier-to-carrier, high speed broadband, enterprise and fixed data services, enables MTN and Liquid Telecom access to each other’s fixed and wireless networks in countries on the African continent, where one party may not currently have presence.

Liquid Telecom believes the partnership is in response to the increasing demand from businesses across West Africa for the company’s broadband service.

“We have a well-deserved reputation in East, Central and Southern Africa, for providing quality broadband to businesses.

“We are laying 100km of new fibre every week but have decided to partner for the time being in West Africa so that we can immediately meet demand from businesses there,” says Nic Rudnick, CEO of The Liquid Telecom Group.

The partnership enables Liquid Telecom to offer businesses gigabit-speed services accompanied by negotiated SLAs and consistently excellent 24/7 customer service.

The additional countries which Liquid Telecom will now have a presence in are Benin, Cameroon, Congo Brazzaville, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Guinea Republic, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Nigeria, Sudan, South Sudan and Swaziland.

The agreement with Liquid Telecom gives MTN the ability to service its multinational enterprise customers in Burundi, DRC, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.

MTN says the partnership reaffirms its commitment to enable and inspire the growth of its enterprise customers across Africa and the rest of the world, as well as furthers its ambition to be the ICT partner of choice
for customers looking to expand geographically.

Elia Tsouros, MTN’s Enterprise Business Unit Head of Global Sales, says the partnership will provide great benefits to customers.

The companies will be able to leverage each other’s products and services to improve their offerings to carrier and enterprise customers in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

“In addition, we have the opportunity to offer our customers services beyond our footprint, thanks to the combined footprints of both companies, as well as those of our partners.

“Furthermore, this partnership reinforces our extensive service offerings in country and internationally,” says Tsouros.

Liquid Telecom’s fibre network spans 20 000km across several countries.

Together, Liquid Telecom and MTN will be able to provision networks with complex requirements faster and sell each other’s wholesale, carrier, enterprise and fixed services on the combined network – providing more choice to businesses of all sizes, competitively.

Liquid Telecom is the leading independent data, voice and IP provider in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa.
