EASSY FIBRE PROJECT HOLDS CRUCIAL FINANCE MEETING IN TANZANIA

Telecoms

EASSY consortium members met last week in Dar es Salaam to discuss how the project will be financed and the progress the project has made so far. According to one consortium member (see Kai Wulff interview in People section below) the project now has completed raising its finance and will move forward.

A number of inland sections of the project are already underway with KDN, MTN and UTL completing fibre connections to Kenya and KDN and Kenya Telkom both building Nairobi-Mombasa fibre routes. KDN is also planning to extend its network into Tanzania, which has also launched the first parts of what it claims will be a nationwide network.
