Paratus announces major plans for Angola

ICT network solutions, satellite connectivity and infrastructure company the Paratus Group has said it is on the verge of establishing a highly sophisticated network hub in Angola.

The company has said that this hub is the culmination of several years of telecommunications infrastructure investments in a number of African countries as well as the expansion of fibre and microwave coverage across Angola’s 18 provinces.

Local telecommunications services provider Internet Technologies Angola (ITA) was recently officially rebranded as Paratus Angola. The official brand launch for Paratus Angola was held on 8 July at the company’s Angolan headquarters in Luanda.

The companies say the brand repositioning will provide access to additional resources and seamless integration across Paratus’ transcontinental network in Africa.

Quoted in a number of news outlets, Director General for Paratus Angola, Francisco Pinto Leite, said: “Digital transformation is essential not only for the Southern African region but for the continent at large. By continually expanding our networks, we hope to positively impact the lives of millions of our people through the potential that increased connectivity brings with it, especially in health, education, and job creation.”

The Paratus Group serves customers in over 35 African countries and says it has access to skilled teams across the seven countries where it has an operational presence.

Its recent work in Africa includes the establishment of fibre connections to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the inauguration of a new data centre in Namibia and work on a number of new submarine cables such as as the Google Equiano Cable, for which Paratus was the landing partner when the cable landed in Namibia on 1 July.
