Difficulties in rolling out fibre network will be overcome, says Angolan Official


The minister of Telecommunication and Information Technologies, José Carvalho da Rocha last week stressed the importance of working with other state institutions to overcome the obstacles experienced by Angola Telecom in rolling out its national fibre network.

Speaking to the press at the end of an assessment visit to Angola Telecom in Luanda, the Minister said he considered it essential to work in partnership with the Road Institute of Angola (INEA) and the National Inter-sectoral Commission of Demining and Humanitarian Assistance (CNIDAH), in order to solve the issues.

According to José Carvalho da Rocha, the Ministry will study the most appropriate mechanisms to overcome the difficulties found on the routes where the optical fibre lines will be trenched. Some routes pass through uncleared mine fields that will need to be cleared before work can begin.
