Maroc Telecom-backed Gabon Telecom is set to deploy a nationwide fibre-optic network, enabling it to introduce video-on-demand (VoD) services for end-users. The plans were revealed by Maroc Telecom chairman Abdeslam Ahizoune after a one-on-one meeting with Gabonese president Ali Bongo Ondimba last week. Gabon Telecom currently offers mobile, fixed line and xDSL broadband services, and in October 2014 claimed to be the first company in Central Africa to launch 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services.
