Liquid Telecom has setup a fibre based high speed internet network in South Sudan will “transform the way South Sudanese people and businesses access the internet”.
The company is the first to bring high-speed connectivity to many other African countries. Through a partnership with the South Sudanese government, the company has now built critical fibre infrastructure in South Sudan.
This network will help deliver affordable internet access to South Sudanese people, businesses and governments, and ultimately help the country to progress towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Liquid Telecom’s network in South Sudan:
The First phase of the project completed in January 2020 includes a 200km fibre backbone, connecting the border of Uganda through Nimule to the capital city Juba.
Multiple metro clusters in the capital city of Juba were completed in January 2020.
Expansion of Juba metro fibre and to other cities in subsequent phases (to be confirmed) will be added in the near future.
