Phase3 Telecom rings with multiple city connectivity


West Africa’s largest independent fibre optic infrastructure and telecommunications services provider, Phase3 Telecom, has commenced the new year on a high note as it is set to connect more cities to its network. This re-affirming its key focus to ensure that West Africa enjoys full access to reliable, high-speed and affordable broadband connectivity.

It would be recalled that last year, the company recorded major successes including the addition of over a 1000km to its 6000km coverage area with footprint expansion of its MPLS network and fixed broadband services, making it possible for people and businesses to access the superior performance of its aerial fibre optic connectivity which has the full potential of internet usage at “superfast” speed on its enterprise-wide networks.

According to the firm’s CEO, Stanley Jegede, it is a great professional boost for Phase3 family to kick-off 2015, with renewed vigour to connect more cities. It reinstates the team’s drive to offer strong, trustworthy and seamless communications solutions to clients all over West Africa. It is a clear attestation to Phase3’s unflinching commitment to enabling new, advanced and highly differentiated telecommunications services across Nigeria and throughout the African continent in order to deliver the most innovative solutions.

“It is an incomparable high point for us that people and businesses operating in the region can effectively connect with each other and the rest of the world as they ride on our network and strong international partnerships,” he says.

Jegede maintains that connecting these cities also means businesses in these locations get to enjoy network access to over 400 cities worldwide, especially with recent network expansion projects, upgrades and global partnership with PCCW Global, the Hong Kong-headquartered international operating division of HKT, Hong Kong’s premier telecom service provider.
He concludes by saying “Phase3’s relentless effort to get more cities connected belies the company’s central vision to run an infrastructure that is the largest in size and most versatile in connectivity. Our brand promise is to remain the choice network; that provides high level services to meet the unique needs of our numerous broadband customers and that continuously improves network performance and value creation to satisfy the changing needs of our enterprise customers. We will keep operating efficiently, innovatively and reliably, with a focus on the successful redefinition of the market towards convergence.

“This will make telecommunications not only more coherent but intelligent as it will actively prepare clients for the rapidly evolving future of broadband capabilities. Thus, launching active users into a new world of naturally smart, vastly sustainable, swiftly adaptive, completely reliable and very simple intelligent networks, is yet
a rising phenomenon in this region.”

By this development, Phase3 in its 11th year of operations continues to show its capabilities as a foremost indigenous service provider championing the drive to re-define Nigeria’s telecommunications landscape with an unwavering dedication and eagerness to deliver to all West Africans services they need for a sustainable socio-economic progress.
