Equatorial Guinea Leads Central Africa in Telecommunications Connectivity, in Line with Horizon 2020 Goals

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea continues to lead Central Africa in telecommunications connectivity with the expansion of the Ceiba-2 fiber optic cable, in line with the country’s Horizon 2020 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Management of Public Telecommunications Infrastructure (GIGTE) is set to launch Equatorial Guinea’s new fiber optic cable project, which connects Malabo to Kribi, Cameroon and Bata, Equatorial Guinea, in addition to connecting Central Africa to Europe.

The construction of the state-of-the-art fiber optic cable was conducted under direction by the President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, HE Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.

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.
