We saw the map below in Econet’s financial results briefings for 2011 and thought to post it here. It shows the progress of the fibre backbone project that the largest mobile operators is working. As you can see, the section running from Harare through Bulawayo to Beitbridge is now fully operational. It also shows the fibre rings in Harare and Bulawayo have been completed.
Econet won’t say yet just how much capacity in international bandwidth the cable can carry, or how much capacity is lit at the moment, but that will surely be clear soon. The company now competes with state owned Internet Access Provider, PowerTel, in bringing in international internet bandwidth into Zimbabwe. Like we’ve written here before, a number of ISPs (ZOL included) already use the Econet fibre.
