11 Oct 2022

Namibian operator Mobile Telecommunications (MTC) has now deployed 475km of fibre-optic backbone cabling to alleviate congestion on its network, reports Namibia Economist. As part of the NAD100 million (USD5.5 million) deployment, fibre has been installed in Pionierspark Extension 1, Dorado Park, Olympia, Kleine Kuppe, Elisenheim, Ambrose Village, Grace Court (Khomasdal) and Auas Breeze (Cimbebasia) areas of Windhoek, as well as in the coastal suburb of Langstrand.

‘This development answers the long wait of a reliable connectivity, while also smoothening the company’s journey of creating a sustainable value for all our stakeholders through innovative digital solutions and a high-performance culture,’ MTC’s Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer Tim Ekandjo said, adding customers in these areas now have access to Spectra Home fibre broadband packages supporting download speeds of up to 50Mbps. The company plans to continue with its fibre rollout to homes in various towns, including Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, supported by additional backbone expansions to MTC’s cell towers.
