The leading telecommunications company which supplies wholesale fibre optic, Liquid Telecom Group has today declared its appointment as the official connectivity provider for the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) General Assembly; which endorses responsible and sustainable tourism.
The assembly being hosted by both the Zambian and the Zimbabwe governments will take place in 24th to 29th this month. It will be held in Livingstone, Zambia and Victoria falls, Zimbabwe.
“We are delighted to have been asked to provide high-speed, high-quality broadband for this very important Assembly. Zambia and Zimbabwe are fabulous tourist destinations. Visitors must have access to reliable communications, as should businesses and the people who live there. Our fibre network is essential to the success of Africa’s Digital Future. We believe in the power of connectivity to transform lives and our goal is to connect as many people in Africa as possible,” said Nic Rudnick, CEO of The Liquid Telecom Group.
Liquid Telecom Zimbabwe and CEC Liquid Telecom Zambia have laid new fibre, in preparation for the assembly, to connect all major hotels and international airports in Lusaka, Livingstone and Victoria falls to its present fibre network. The company has installed Wi-Fi as well in the hotels and the airports.
Africa’s largest fibre network, built by Liquid Telecom Group, runs from the north of Uganda to Cape Town on a single thread. Its open access Pan-African fibre network spans over 13,000km across Botswana, DRC, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe entirely. It is the first fibre network to cross country borders and covers Africa’s fastest-growing economies.
