Sudatel Telecom Group and leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, a subsidiary of Econet Global, recently signed an MoU to build new FTTH networks across Sudan.

Leveraging Liquid Telecom’s extensive experience in deploying high-speed networks, Sudatel will build FTTH networks in Sudan designed to the highest network standards and using the latest technologies.

Comparable to similar networks deployed in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya and Rwanda by Liquid Telecom, the new FTTH networks will deliver speeds initially up to 100Mbps. This is expected to transform the way Sudanese businesses and consumers experience and use the internet.

By investing in Sudan’s telecoms infrastructure, Sudatel and Liquid Telecom will help raise the quality of network services in the country while also increasing competition in the local market.

Liquid Telecom has built Africa’s largest independent fibre network, spanning over 50,000km in Eastern, Southern and Central Africa, where it is delivering quality and affordable broadband to homes and businesses through its FTTH services.

Tarig Hamza Zain El Abdein, CEO of Sudatel Telecom Group
Our partnership with Liquid Telecom will enable us to provide a high-quality FTTH network which will help uplift people’s lives through our region’s economic development.

Nic Rudnick, Group CEO, Liquid Telecom 
Liquid Telecom has a proven track record of bringing world-class fibre networks to previously underserved regions of Africa. We are delighted to support Sudatel with its efforts to deliver leading FTTH services to more businesses and consumers in Sudan, which will help grow the country’s digital economy.
