CEC Liquid Telecom – the preferred wholesale broadband company
CEC Liquid Telecom has become the preferred wholesale broadband connectivity telecommunications company, both at national level and within the region.
CEC Liquid Telecom has constructed a fibre optic network within the main commercial centres in Zambia. It also provides two international links through Zimbabwe to South Africa which connects into international fibre cables linking to other African countries and other continents and is one of Zambia’s main carriers of international internet traffic.
The company is planning to accelerate investment into urban fibre networks in 2014. CEC anticipates expansion and growth within and outside Zambia.
The next stage of development for CEC Liquid Telecom is to roll out fibre more extensively in the main commercial and residential centres of Zambia using ‘GPON’ fibre technology. This initiative will extend the availability of fibre to a wider number of residential, commercial and business premises.
The first area where GPON is being deployed is the Rhodes Park area of Lusaka. CEC Liquid Telecom is securing debt facilities of USD16m to undertake this investment, and CEC has been requested to provide a guarantee facility for half of this amount with the other half being provided by Liquid Telecom.
Commissioning of fibre cable with access to East Africa and co-located submarine cables has offered numerous opportunities, as well as competition, but the solid foundation of the company with support from both shareholders (CEC and Liquid Telecommunications of Mauritius), enables the company to pursue opportunities.
