3 Aug 2009

The Secretary-General of Central African Republic’s telecoms regulator, the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, has revealed that the country plans to participate in a fibre-optic network project called the Central African Backbone. According to a report by Balancing Act, the World Bank-backed scheme will initially create fibre links between Camtel’s national fibre backbone in Cameroon and two countries – Central African Republic and Chad – with a view to extending links to Niger, Nigeria, Sudan, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe and Republic of Congo.
