(Business in Cameroon) - The Congo-Cameroon optical fiber interconnection works are currently 98% completed. The information was disclosed on June 2, 2021, in Brazzaville (Congo), by the project’s steering committee during a work meeting with Léon Juste Ibombo, Congolese Minister of Posts and Telecommunications.

We have a report claiming that the network is nearly completed with a 98% execution rate. We must then ensure that the execution rate is true. We must also obtain the construction companies and technical controllers’ approval to carry out a field visit to assess whether the sub-regional integration project is on track,” the official explained.

The optical fiber interconnection works were launched on August 8, 2020, in the framework of the Central Africa Backbone (CAB) project aimed at ensuring the fiber-optic interconnection of CEMAC countries. It is a regional integration project whose aim is to facilitate digital exchanges between Congo and Cameroon. It will also help break the digital isolation of bordering regions in the two countries and also help reduce costs and the digital gap.
