Central African Backbone Project stretches wider

Cameroon is extending its fibre optic capacity to countries in Central and West Africa – specifically the Central African Republic, Congo and Nigeria, according to the steering committee of the Central African Backbone Project.

At its fifth ordinary session the Committee acknowledged that Cameroon has strong fibre optic capacity and has already extended it to Equatorial Guinea and Chad, it said it is now ready to add more countries.

This was confirmed by Cameroon's Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MINPOSTEL), which stated, "Likewise, after the effective interconnection with Chad and Equatorial Guinea through fiber optic, efforts are under way to interconnect Cameroon with the Central African Republic, Congo and Nigeria. These interconnections activities are underpinned by the signing of memoranda of understanding with the authorities of these countries."

The MINPOSTEL also enjoined the Central African Backbone Project to continue to support public institutions and enterprises especially in the areas of operational digitalisation.
