Camtel and Angola Cables form backhaul partnership

Angola Cables and Camtel have partnered to expand digital and connectivity services in Cameroon and the West Africa region.

The companies had previously declared their intent to develop business opportunities in the region, with stated goals of improving redundancy, network resilience and quality of service (QoS) both nationally and internationally.

By combining Angola Cables’ backhaul network – which encompasses connections with subsea cable systems WACS, SACS and Monet – with Camtel’s connection to SAIL (South Atlantic Inter Link), the firms will be able to provide expanded capacity offerings to enterprise customers with better traffic access to both local and regional networks.

Camtel CEO Judith Yah Sunday Epse Achidi said: “Our strategic intent is to build on the robust backhaul connectivity of the Angola Cables network, and the existing interconnections we have in place with other submarine cables connecting the region and the world, to provide flexible and secure value added services for our clients and businesses.”

“For users, [the partnership] will help to secure connectivity, trade, boost economies, and help expand as well as grow businesses across the region,” said Fernando Fernandes, Country Manager of Angola Cables subsidiary TelCables Nigeria.
