Kwanza Sul switches on new digital fixed network

9 Aug 2010

Angola Telecom has switched on a new section of its digital fixed line network with fibre-optic backbone in Angola’s central Kwanza Sul province, connecting the eight district headquarters in the region. The EUR18 million (USD24 million) project was funded by the Italian government in participation with the Angolan state, and has so far increased the number of fixed telephone lines in usage in the province from 2,000 to 10,000, after connecting in a first phase the districts of Sumbe, Porto Amboim, Amboim, Conda, Cela, Seles, Kibala and Libolo.
