Angola’s Savings and Credits Bank (BPC) is set to provide USD70 million towards the rollout of a new submarine fibre-optic cable network which will connect the country’s coastal provinces, according to a statement by incumbent fixed line operator Angola Telecom.

The provinces are Cabinda, Zaire, Luanda, Cuanza Sur, Benguela and Namibe. Angola’s Council of Ministers has approved the project, which aims to improve telephone and TV services in the six provinces. Angola Telecom will operate the new system, while Ericsson South Africa will construct the network, which is to be known as Adonis.
