Denmark aids fibre rollout

20 Nov 2006

Denmark is helping with a fibre-optic deployment in Mozambique, signing an agreement for a EUR15 million grant to help finance the second phase of the country’s National Fibre-Optic Transmission Network. Mozambique’s Agencia de Informaçao reports that the rollout will begin in April or May 2007 and will connect the northern cities of Cuamba, Lichinga, Nampula and Pemba, and will also include a link between the central cities of Chimoio, Tete and Caia. The deployment is being carried out by national PTO Telecomunicações de Moçambique (TDM).
