PCCW Global expands into Benin

PCCW Global has expanded into Benin as part of an interconnection agreement with local operator Isocel Telecom.

The move will enable PCCW Global to offer its enterprise customers access to Benin, as well as cross border connectivity on to neighbouring Burkina Faso.

The agreement will see Isocel Telecom provision Ethernet and IP VPN services in Benin and neighbouring countries.

“We operate one of Africa’s most advanced regional and international networks, and we are very honoured that we are today able to announce that Benin and Burkina Faso have joined our global community of connected countries, and that customers in these countries, and our many customers around the world who want and need high quality access into these high growth countries, will now be able to reap the benefits associated with connectivity to PCCW Global’s technology-neutral MPLS network,” said James Welch, PCCW Global’s VP and head of sales, EMEA.

Last year, PCCW Global established similar agreements with Nambians operator Paratus Telecom and Telecom Nambia.
