DURBAN - Liquid Telecom South Africa, part of the leading pan-African telecoms group Liquid Telecom, today announced that it will establish a multi-billion Rand 4G network in South Africa.
From early 2019, wholesale roaming services will be made available across Liquid Telecom’s network nationwide.
According to Liquid Telecom South Africa Chief Executive, Reshaad Sha said, "This is an exciting development which will enable us to provide Mobile Network Operators and ISPs with open access to our mobile 4G network. Using our 1800MHz spectrum, the network will handle 4G mobile data traffic to meet the needs of the most demanding users across the country".
Liquid Telecom, which acquired Neotel from Tata Communications in February 2017, has been investing heavily across the continent where it operates Africa’s largest independent fibre network that is almost 70,000km in length and linked to more than 600 towns and cities in 13 countries.
This includes the recent completion of Liquid Telecom’s award winning ‘Cape to Cairo’ network which represents the first direct land-based terrestrial fibre link from Cape Town to Cairo.
