Towards the end of 2022, Paratus Botswana embarked on a groundbreaking project to lay an 840-kilometer fiber route from Gaborone to Mamuno, passing through Molepolole, Letlhakeng, Kang and extending all the way to the Namibian border. This strategic endeavor aims to connect Botswana to the cutting-edge 144-terabit Google Equiano subsea cable, which the Paratus Group successfully landed in Swakopmund, Namibia, in 2023. The deployment of this state of the art technology represents a significant investment by Paratus Botswana, enabling the provision of faster, more reliable connections, diversification of routes and enhanced redundancy without third-party involvement.

BKF News

Due to Botswana’s strategic location in Southern Africa, it is playing an increasingly vital role in regional interconnectivity. Bordering Namibia and South Africa, Botswana serves as the shortest and fastest route between the recently installed Equiano subsea cable and the Teraco Data Centre in Johannesburg. 

In a significant kick off to the new year, Paratus announces the initiation of the BKF 840 Challenge, a staff fitness challenge where teams of 5 will collectively run or walk, a total distance of 840km in 45 days, from 8th January to 21st February, 2024.

FAQ

What is Fiber and how is it different from radio/wireless internet?
Fiber optic technology delivers internet to your premises through fiber cables, typically using aerial fiber for home use. In contrast, wireless technology relies on cable-free radio devices. Both methods provide high-speed internet with low latencies. Fiber is competitively priced compared to wireless, which involves more complex devices and higher maintenance costs. While wireless is quick and easy to install and maintain during incidents, fiber installation may take a bit longer but offers greater resilience to weather conditions.
What makes Paratus internet different from other providers?

This is why we have made it a point to provide our customers with unlimited connectivity backed by 24/7 support for all of our customers, no matter their size.
