Camtel, Sudachad collaborate to expand telecoms portfolio
Cameroon Telecoms (Camtel) will soon connect with Sudachad Telecom to break into the Chadian enterprise market.
The two announced the plans yesterday at the culmination of a three-day working visit to Yaounde by a Sudachad group.
Camtel's head of international sales coordination and planning department, Justin Tala, stated that Camtel is targeting the enterprise segment in the subregion and will outline an acceptable partnership model with Sudachad.
The parties also talked about the West to East Africa Network Access, a 3,500-kilometer-long terrestrial optical fiber line that spans from Port-Sudan to the Red Sea, and is being built by Camtel, SudaChad Telecom, and Sudatel.
"We also discussed WE-Africa-NA perspectives. Some obstacles, particularly technological ones, hampered progress, but we were able to fix them late last year when we achieved connectivity between Kribi and Port Sudan. The tests were a success," Tala stated.
Camtel officials also said that the company will take immediate steps to address power shortages and network degradation in order to improve the availability of services offered to Sudachad.
Camtel pledged to resolve unlawful connectivity in Chad and to increase Sudachad's internet service from 25Gbits to 40Gbits within three months.
Camtel's general manager, Judith Yah Sunday epse Achidi, said:"Camtel will continue to work on improving the quality of services provided to its clients."
Additional areas of partnership have also been identified.
