GIGTE Helps Equatorial Guinea Reach Horizon 2020 Goals

The Management of Public Telecommunications Infrastructure (GIGTE) offers fiber optic connectivity and Internet services for the education, economic, and social development of Equatorial Guinea in line with the country’s Horizon 2020 goals.

The improvement of connectivity increases job opportunities for Equatorial Guineans, business sales, education and training for students and professionals, and communication within Equatorial Guinea and with the rest of the world.

The fiber optic underwater and land cable connects Equatorial Guinea’s mainland and island of Bioko to high-speed international Internet services.

The advent of the new telecommunications services increases connectivity, speed, and capacity, all with a lower cost, for the Equatorial Guineans.

In addition, the GIGTE is collaborating with the National Autonomous University of Mexico in the fields of linguistics, social anthropology, geology, and natural sciences.

The groups recently met in Equatorial Guinea to establish a collaboration agreement aligned with the country’s Horizon 2020 goals.
