Investment & Technology Group Company (ITC), a provider of fixed-line backhaul capacity in Iraq, has opened up access to more than 1,800 cities in 120 countries after signing a deal with Hong Kong’s PCCW Global.

PCCW Global’s customers worldwide, including those based in the Middle East-Africa region, can now access virtually all cities and locations in Iraq through a combination of copper, fibre, microwave, and satellite solutions offered by PCCW Global and ITC.

ITC became a significant player in Iraq’s transmission sector after winning a 15-year licence from Iraq’s telecoms regulator, ITPC, to market capacity over the recently launched Gulf Bridge International (GBI) subsea cable. GBI’s cable, which connects the Middle East and Africa to Europe and Asia, was launched in February.

Fadil Mosawi, chairman of ITC, said: “Together with the new GBI fibre cable, the Iraqi people will soon be able to connect to the rest of world with higher Internet connection speed and enjoy new services including Voice over IP, HDTV, as well as a host of other business applications such as cloud computing.”
