Following the announcement in February 2021 that African telco, Paratus Group, together with Telecom Namibia, had been selected to build the cable landing station (CLS) for the Equiano subsea internet cable in Namibia, the cable was brought ashore.  The Equiano subsea cable will provide communications diversity due to its increased capacity and this will have a direct impact on connectivity with faster internet speeds, more flexibility in the market, and an improved user experience for consumers in Namibia and beyond.

Once Equiano becomes fully operational in Q4 this year, it is expected to deliver up to 20 times more capacity than was previously available in Namibia. According to a recent economic impact assessment, conducted by Africa Practice and Genesis Analytics, and commissioned by Google, Equiano’s arrival in Namibia is set to increase internet speeds by over 2.5 times; increase internet penetration by 7.5% in the next three years; and act as a catalyst for considerable growth, job creation, and sustainability.

Nitin Gajria, Managing Director of Google Sub-Saharan Africa commenting on the landing of Equiano in Namibia said: “Google is committed to supporting Africa’s digital transformation and we are excited to see the impact of the landing of Equiano in Namibia.  We’ve worked with experts – Paratus Group (and Telecom Namibia) in Namibia – to guarantee that Equiano has the greatest potential effect in Namibia and throughout Africa.”

Paratus completed the building of the CLS in September last year, and the internal fit – including power, cabling cabinets, conduits, raceways, cages, and security – was completed in January 2022. As the current CEO of Paratus Group, Barney Harmse explains: “Namibia has higher internet connection levels – at 40.5% compared with an average of 29% for sub-Saharan African countries – but has relied upon the West Africa Cable System (WACS) for its international connectivity until now.  The landing of the Equiano cable will significantly increase Namibia’s international bandwidth capacity as it is four times greater than WACS.  This will not only ensure better stability of connectivity in the country but also lower latency and higher speeds in the global transmission of data.

“This is a landmark event and a great day for Namibia’s digital transformation.  We are very proud to be the Google landing partner, and infrastructure partner with Telecom Namibia, to deliver better connectivity to everyone in Namibia.”

Telecom Namibia CEO, Dr Stanley Shanapinda said: “The Google Equiano Cable shore landing is a major step in the development of our national telecommunications infrastructure. This cable will become a critical element in meeting Namibia’s current and future international connectivity demands, as the cable incorporates new technology that enables approximately 20 times more network capacity than the current WACS cable. The cable will ensure redundancy for Telecom Namibia and offers an alternative when other routes may be impaired. The volume of information moving around the world has grown exponentially, particularly due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and thus, the cable will further strengthen and enhance the backbone of modern communications in Namibia.

“Improved connectivity will accelerate job creation. Between 2022 and 2025, Equiano is expected to indirectly create 21,000 jobs in Namibia, driven by the expansion of the digital economy and associated business sectors.  This is also in line with Namibia’s long-term development framework – Vision 2030 – which positions ICT as a key pillar of the country’s economy.

Harmse concludes: “Equiano will make an enduring and valuable contribution towards the development of Namibia’s communications infrastructure. We are proud partners in this intervention to deliver improved internet quality to the people of Namibia.  And this is just one intervention in which Paratus is involved towards the shared goal of transforming Africa through digital access to more information and content.”

Fair Usage Policy (FUP)

Paratus reserves the right to apply network traffic engineering policies on any designated service to ensure fair and high-quality access for all our customers. The fair usage policy is dynamic and certain traffic types will be throttled during specified peak traffic times. Further, customers that reach the fair usage levels allocated to their product will also be throttled. What does throttle mean? Throttled data transfer, also known as data transfer throttling or lean data transfer, is the deliberate regulation of the data transfer rate in a communications system. Data transfer throttling can be used in any scenario where it is necessary or desirable to limit the amount of data that can be sent or received per unit time. Each product has allocated FUP threshold parameters.
