Burundi: Burundi’s International Bandwidth Increases by 34% During 2018

Burundi’s international Internet bandwidth reached 6.425 Gbps in December 2018, according to latest statistics published by the Agence de Régulation et de Contrôle des Télécommunications (ARCT). This was a 34% increase compared to 4.8 Gbps in 2017 (see Burundi: Burundi’s International Bandwidth Reaches 4.8 Gbps, Dec 2017). Two operators provide international fibre connectivity to Burundi, Burundi Backbone System (BBS) and Viettel Burundi (Lumitel). ARCT says that five ISPs have signed commercial agreements with foreign providers: BBS, Viettel, Onatel, Econet LEO and CBINet. BBS provides the international transport capacity to the other four ISPs, while Viettel provides its own international connectivity. BBS has six international fibre routes: three routes via Rwanda, two via Tanzania, and one route to the DRC. In December 2016, Viettel had three international fibre routes, two via Tanzania and one via Rwanda (see also Tanzania: Halotel’s Fibre Network Reaches 18,000-Km in 2017).
