Pan Africa operator, Liquid Telecoms has announced the expansion of its business in Zambia following the full acquisition of Realtime, the second largest Internet Service Provider in the country.
Realtime will now change its focus on the retail and business markets in Zambia which are not regulated by the telecoms regulator, ZICTA. It will provide communications services using the satellite and fibre networks of CEC Liquid Telecom as well as its existing WiMAX network.
Realtime will also be one of the first resellers for Fibroniks, Liquid Telecom's Fibre To The Home service.
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."
