11 Oct 2021

Group Vivendi Africa (GVA) has announced plans to deploy its ‘CanalBox’ fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services in Port-Gentil, Gabon’s second largest city, in the first half of 2022, reports Gabon Media Time. Speaking at the official opening of the company’s new head office in Libreville, GVA CEO Marco de Assis stressed the firm is keen to establish itself in the country’s telecoms sector over the long term. ‘We are putting in place a plan and by 2022 we will have a presence in Port-Gentil and then we will deploy in other provinces in the interior of the country,’ he added.

GVA launched FTTH services in Libreville in October 2017 and has since expanded the network to cover more than 130,000 homes and businesses in the capital and surrounding areas, supporting download speeds of up to 50Mbps.
