26 Nov 2014

South Africa-based Vox Telecom has concluded the sale of its Namibian division to Paratus Telecommunications (formerly Internet Technologies Namibia) for an undisclosed amount, including all assets and full staff complement, IT News Africa reports. The companies stated that the merger adds ‘best of breed’ voice services offered by Vox Telecom Namibia to the well-established data network and infrastructure of Paratus, creating a diversified product and services portfolio that can be delivered to business customers in Namibia and other African countries. Barney Harmse, CEO of Paratus, stated that: ‘Three years ago, we started on a transition phase aimed at evolving us from being a traditional ISP into a fully-fledged telecommunications operator. The finalisation of this acquisition completes this growth phase for Paratus … Aside from the additional spectrum of technology offerings we have now obtained, we have acquired something much more valuable – people and human capital.’
