The Liquid Telecom Group announced a partnership agreement with Tanzania Telecommunications Company (TTCL) to interconnect with its fibre network in Tanzania. Liquid Telecom Kenya has built a fibre link from Nairobi to Namanga on the border of Kenya and Tanzania, which has the capacity of multiple STM 64s. Traffic terminating in Tanzania will now pass onto TTCL's fibre network, providing Liquid's customers with connectivity throughout Tanzania. The partnership with TTCL means that Liquid Telecom is the first wholesale carrier to connect the East African capitals of Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Kampala and Kigali on a single fibre network. Traffic into and out of Tanzania will now interconnect with Liquid's existing networks in the neighbouring countries of Kenya, Rwanda, DRC and Zambia as well as the other countries in which Liquid is operational: Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
