SEACOM has recently launched a new programme that would see the introduction of fibre internet and cloud services to business customers in Africa. This enterprise unit would be able to provide African business customers with download options ranging from 25MBps to 1GBps, transforming African businesses in the process.
With this launch, SEACOM would be able to provide different business ventures with high-speed connectivity and quality bandwidth. This is not all as they have taken the issue of cost into consideration likewise, making it as affordable as it can come. With its undersea cable system as well as abundant cloud services it offers, businesses located in the South and East of Africa would be able to transition into the cloud.
Speaking on the development, the CEO of SEACOM, Bryan Clatterback has said “In the past, SEACOM focused on bringing low-cost data transmission infrastructure to other service providers in Africa. However, we were not seeing the optimal take-up of our international capabilities in the marketplace and the benefits that this can bring”
The management of SEACOM, who have already launched about 20 fibre precincts in South Africa alone and aims to even roll out more (about 40) before the end of the year 2015 offers a wide variety of services which ranges from high-speed access to the Internet, Ethernet, Private line services and as well, cloud services. These cloud services then go on to include hosted mail, online backup, Virtual hosting, etc.
