The commercial and marketing director of Angola Cable, Artur Mendes, stressed early this week that Angola intends in the next two years to be a hub in terms of Internet and technology in Africa.
According to the official, two projects are underway to achieve this objective, namely in the telecommunications area aimed at connecting Angola and South America (Brazil), and from there North America through submarine optical fibre cables.
Beside these projects, Angola is already connected through this sub-marine optical fibre which comes from Europe (England) to South Africa, but the intention is to be independent from South Africa in
terms of Telecommunication and Internet, be it data, voice and video.
To be a telecommunications and internet hub of the continent, according to the source, is to bring to the country through sub-marine cables every content (video, voice and data) of great internet providers
like Microsoft, Google and others and be able to communicate with neighbouring countries.
“Making Angola a Hub is putting the country on the map of internet and telecommunications,” he stressed.
