The Mozambican ministry of science and technology has signed a 20 year agreement with Seacom to access internet broadband fibre connectivity to Europe and the rest of the world.

Beneficiaries of the new capacity include the Mozambique Research and Education Network (MoRENet) and the Government Electronic Network (GovNet). The bandwidth will help MoRENet to deliver reliable, high speed internet traffic to its member institutions as well as share content with other Research Education Networks (NRENs) around the world.

GovNet too will be better able to improve eGovernment performance and can follow through on its aim to connect all state and government institutions through a single private network.

Mark Simpson, Seacom’s CEO said: “Seacom is the ideal partner to provide the international connectivity that will complement Mozambique’s extensive broadband data communications networks initiatives. Over the past three years, we have witnessed how the availability of true broadband at lower prices can accelerate educational initiatives and economic development across the region and we look forward to working with the Mozambican government to help build a truly African internet.”

Dr. Evaristo Baquete, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Science and Technology added: “The Mozambican government views affordable and high quality data networks as a vital tool to achieve the country’s various developmental goals. Seacom brought cheaper and faster international connectivity to this country and we believe that they are the partner of choice to continue to bring about positive changes to the country and its people.”

Currently over a dozen countries across Africa have access to Seacom’s low cost products and services via its extended network.
