Angola: Liquid Dataport Commits To New 2,500-Km Direct Fibre Route Connecting Angola and Zambia

On 10 July 2023, Liquid Dataport a business of Liquid Intelligent Technologies (Liquid), announced plans to expand its fibre optic backbone to directly connect Luanda (the capital city of Angola) to Lusaka (the capital city of Zambia) with a new route via Chavuma on the border between the two neighbouring countries. The new 2,500-km route will run from Luanda - Lobito – Kuito – Luena – Chavuma – Solwezi – Kitwe – Ndola – Lusaka, and follows Liquid’s launch of a new fibre route running from Lobito – Luanda – Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC). “This new direct route via Chavuma will be available in the next few months, with an additional route to be launched later using fibre along the Lobito Corridor,” said David Eurin, CEO of Liquid Dataport in a company press release. “We look forward to collaborating with the telecom providers in Angola, leading to improved coverage and the quality of ICT services across the two countries.”

Previously, in June 2023 Liquid Dataport and Angola Telecom announced that they had established a new high capacity terrestrial fibre optic route from Luanda to Johannesburg (South Africa) via Kinshasa (DRC), Lusaka (Zambia) and Harare (Zimbabwe). This route runs from Luanda – Noqui – Kinshasa – Kananga – Lubumbashi – Kitwe - Lusaka – Kariba - Harare – Beitbridge – Pretoria – Johannesburg (see Angola: Liquid Dataport and Angola Telecom Establish New Terrestrial Fibre Route From Luanda (Angola) To Johannesburg (South Africa)).  “In the last few months, we have launched multiple new routes interconnecting countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Building a route that directly connects Angola and Zambia is key to our Group’s vision of a digitally connected future that leaves no African behind” said Hardy Pemhiwa, Group CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies.
