Congo-Brazzaville, Gabon sign agreement on interconnection of optic fibre networks

Oil-rich and neighbours Congo-Brazzaville and Gabon have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to establish an interconnection between the optic fibre networks CAB3 (Congo) and CAB4 (Gabon).

The agreement will increase the geographical coverage of the network, bandwidth capacity, and reduce the costs of communication in Central Africa, both governments have said.

The signing took place at the Build Africa infrastructure summit in the Congolese capital Brazzaville.

The project is expected to be implemented through the World Bank’s Central African Backbone programme for optic fibre interconnection in Central Africa, according to reports from Brazzaville.

The agreement was signed by Thierry Moungalla, Congolese posts and telecommunications minister and Gabon ambassador to Congo-Brazzaville, who represented Ngoua Deme Pastor, Gabon’s minister of digital economy, communication and posts.

Despite boasting vast quantities of oil and harvesting billions of US dollars every year from this commodity, infrastructure in these two Central African countries is still underdeveloped and existing ones are severely deteriorating.
