SEACOM and TDM ink deal to connect landlocked Zimbabwe


SEACOM has signed a Master Services Agreement with Telecomunicações de Moçambique (TDM), the leading telecommunications service provider in Mozambique. This agreement gives SEACOM and its customers access to the largest and most distributed fibre optic network in Mozambique as well as a diverse route into Zimbabwe and additional border presence into Malawi and South Africa.

Through this agreement, customers in Zimbabwe are able to interconnect to the SEACOM system in Maputo via Mutare. This additional route through Mozambique complements SEACOM’s existing route through South Africa via Beit Bridge and provides Zimbabwean customers with resiliency and redundancy.
