Vivendi subsidiary makes inroads in Gabon fibre project

Tuesday 16 May 2017 | 20:46 CET | News
Vivendi's subsidiary GVA (Group Vivendi Africa) and Veolia's subsidiary SEEG (Societe d'Energie et d'Eau du Gabon) plan to sign an agreement on 16 May enabling GVA to access SEEG's electricity pylons and start deploying an aerial fibre access network in areas of Gabon's capital Libreville, reports Agence Ecofin. GVA received the green light for its deployment from Gabon's ministry of water and electricity in July 2016, but earlier this year blamed SEEG for stalling the project, by backing down from the commitment to give access to its electricity infrastructure.
