Paratus Africa, a private telecommunications operator in Namibia, is offering its standard range of fibre packages to Gobabis businesses and residents.
Paratus has completed a national fibre project, connecting from the WACS landing station in Swakopmund eastward to the border of Botswana and dropped off in various towns en-route, of which Gobabis was one.
Gobabis town council representative, Cllr Liberius Kalili, is proud to have Paratus come forward and address the requirement for businesses and residents to move into the digital age with fibre-optic cable solutions.
“Gobabis can now look towards new opportunities provided by the Internet platform to grow the economy and we call upon entrepreneurs to support the investment made to elevate the town. This is a prime example of how mutual cooperation has benefits to both organisations,” he said.
Andrew Hall, Paratus Namibia Managing Director said it was a natural progression for Paratus to start connecting the towns en-route of the first privately owned national back-haul fibre network through Namibia.
“We will continue on our relentless drive to make investments towards elevating our citizens to gain access to fast and reliable Internet services.”
Paratus has already earmarked other towns en route to provide coverage utilising a range of access technology mediums ranging from fibre, fixed LTE, mobile LTE and microwave solutions.
The telecoms provider also offers a range of satellite solutions for clients who are not in a coverage area.
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Cllr Kalili and the team in Gobabis who were very approachable to the idea of moving ahead with installing fibre infrastructure and their professional execution during the roll-out of the first phase of fibre expansion in town,” said Hall.
“We are grateful for the wonderful reception of the residents and businesses and look forward to the success stories from the community.”
