One of the DRC's four mobile operators is already using Liquid's fibre network to backhaul international traffic from Lubumbashi, eliminating the satellite 'double-hops' in its network. Liquid Telecom's fibre network is the biggest of its kind in Southern Africa. It provides backhaul between most urban areas and last mile connectivity in the main cities of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa. Liquid Telecom operates as a wholesale carrier in all five countries as well as an operator in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Its network provides connectivity to Africa's four main subsea fibre systems, namely WACS, EASSY, Seacom and SAT3.
Liquid Telecom will be investing heavily in expanding to new countries to ensure that for the first time all countries and operators in Central and Southern Africa are directly connected.
