Telco rebrands for pan-African operations

July 3rd, 2017, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


Neotel’s enterprise operations has been rebranded to Liquid Telecom South Africa but the retail business will remain under the Neotel name. The transition to Liquid Telecom South Africa aligns Neotel’s existing enterprise and carrier customer base closer with the Liquid Telecom Group’s wider pan-African operations, which include over 50 000 km of fibre stretching across nine countries in the region, connecting South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Botswana, DRC, Zimbabwe and Zambia. According to Liquid Telecom, by bringing Neotel’s enterprise and carrier business under its brand, South African customers now have unparalleled reach across Southern, Eastern and Central Africa,  enabling connections to branches on the other side of the continent as seamlessly as if it were located just across the road. Following its acquisition in June 2016, Neotel officially joined the Liquid Telecom Group in February and a new leadership team has since been appointed in South Africa to oversee major investment in its network and services. Liquid Telecom is said to have built Africa’s largest single fibre network currently spanning over 50 000 km, including Neotel’s network, across borders and covering Africa’s fastest-growing economies where no fixed network has existed before.
