Fixed and mobile operator, Ethiopian Telecommunications Corporation (ETC), has signed a contract with French equipment supplier Alcatel for its optical multi-service solution. The operator hopes to extend its existing transport network in the eastern and southern parts of the country, linking the cities of Nazareth, Dire Dawa, Debrezeit, Shashemene and Awasha. Alcatel will also link Addis Ababa to Dijbouti Port, connecting the ETC network to international submarine cables.
