In efforts to extend its international footprint, Vodacom Business Africa has taken a step into Brazil, South America, thereby increasing its fixed-connectivity coverage to five continents across the globe.
This trans-Atlantic connection has been made possible through the undersea South Atlantic Cable System, which is the first to directly link the African continent’s southern hemisphere with South America.
With the latest addition of Brazil, the network’s reach now spans South America in addition to Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America, further cementing Vodacom Business Africa’s position as one of Africa’s global connectivity partners of choice.
“Our promise to our valued clients, both new and existing, is to leverage the most optimized fixed-connectivity network routes available into Africa. In so doing, we are shortening the distances between Africa and South America for multinational businesses seeking to consume their hybrid clouds optimally from Africa, as they expand their operations via this inter-continental trading corridor,” says Trevor Naidoo, Executive Head Technology and Operations of Vodacom Business Africa.
