CEC Liquid Telecom has expanded its business in Zambia following the full acquisition of Realtime.
Realtime Technology Alliance Africa Ltd (Realtime) will now focus on the retail and business markets in Zambia which are not regulated by Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA). It will provide communications services to homes and businesses of all sizes across Zambia, using the satellite and fibre networks of CEC Liquid Telecom as well as its existing WiMAX network.
The company will also be one of the first resellers for Fibroniks, Liquid Telecom’s Fibre to the Home (FTTH) service over which homes and businesses of all sizes can receive 100Mbps.
CEC Liquid Telecom will continue to provide wholesale products and services to all licensed operators in Zambia. Realtime will receive network access from CEC Liquid Telecom on the same terms as other providers.
Andrew Kapula, CEC Liquid Telecom managing director, said: “This is another major milestone for both our company and the Zambian telecoms market. We will continue to invest in Zambia so that we can provide operators, ISPs, homes and businesses of all sizes with the fastest and most reliable broadband available in Zambia. We believe in the power of connectivity to change lives and will continue to build a high-quality network that will enable our people and businesses to prosper.”
