Fixed line incumbent Telecom Malagasy (TELMA) announced that its national fibre backbone has reached 9,000-km, according to its 2017 Corporate Review. The operator has now completed new fibre routes from Antsohihy - Bealanana - Andapa – Sambava, and from Antsohihy - Mandritsara - Andilamena – Tanambe which have now entered service. In addition, a new fibre route from Ihosy to Tolarno is also currently under construction. In January 2017 TELMA announced that it planned to expand its national fibre backbone from 5,000-km to 11,000-km in the next two years (see Madagascar: TELMA Plans To Double National Fibre Backbone Within Two Years). According to L’Express de Madagascar, the operator planned to invest up to US$ 250 million in the period from 2017 – 2019 with the objective of covering all cities in the country. In October 2014, TELMA completed a 2,000-km northern fibre ring running from Toamasina – Antsiranana – Mahajanga (see Madagascar: TELMA Completes Fibre Ring From Antsiranana – Mahajanga, Closing Northern Fibre Ring).
