Cameroon Telecommunications (Camtel) will open a subsidiary in Brazil, South Africa and Nigeria.
Each of the branches of Camtel will be used to commercialize the data capacity of the submarine optical fiber cable that lands there from Cameroon.
In Nigeria, the branch will be in charge of managing the data capacity of the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS) submarine fiber optic cable that has been operational since 2016. Connecting the city of Kribi to Lagos, the cable 1100 km has an initial capacity of 12.8Tbps.
The Managing Director of Camtel David Nkoto Emane, declared, “Camtel must well position itself on the telecoms market. We are planning to go beyond mainstream services, to strongly position ourselves as producers and suppliers of digital solutions.”
Emane concluded, “We are in the process of reviewing our company’s status, internal regulations and organizational chart. As we plan to extend worldwide, we must deploy branches wherever our submarine cables land, including Fortaleza in Brazil, Lagos in Nigeria and as well as South Africa.”
