Egypt's Benya Group said it has signed an agreement with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to develop the country's communications infrastructure. Under the agreement, Benya will spearhead the development of the DRC's ICT infrastructure by establishing an end-to-end National Fibre Optics Network (NFON) there. The project will connect all cities digitally, and significantly improve access to high-quality and high-speed network services to DRC residents at low cost.
