(Business in Cameroon) - This year, in the framework of the Central African Backbone (CAB) project, Congo will deploy 550 km of optical fiber for its interconnection with Cameroon and Central Africa.

This is revealed by members of the steering committee of this project in Congo, at the end of a meeting of this committee on January 31, 2018, in Brazzaville.

The project which is aimed at building an optical fiber interconnection between the six member countries of CEMAC is financed by AfDB. Thanks to this project, central African countries will have access to high-speed internet, and improve the quality as well as the quantity of telecommunication and ICT services offered, at affordable prices.
