Paratus Africa works on second east-to-west route to Maputo

Thursday 12 December 2019 | 09:38 CET | News
Paratus Africa says it has added routes for redundancy and is in the process of an aggressive roll-out, to ensure maximum uptime for clients. It said in August that it had completed a terrestrial east-west coast of Africa connection from the WACS undersea cable in Swakopmund in Namibia to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. It is now working to complete the Maputo link, which will connect to the Trans-Kalahari Fibre (TKF) through various countries in Southern Africa, and which will be the second east to west coast route.
