Ivorian ISP and telecoms operator VIPNET has expanded its network from 155Mbps to 1Gbps, with MainOne.

Speaking on the decision to upgrade, Ahmed Cherif, CEO of VIPNET said: “Operational excellence is imperative for the growth of all companies. MainOne has ensured we achieve and maintain our commitment to providing the best connectivity and technology services to the Ivorian market which has enabled us to maintain our position as a major internet service provider in Côte d'Ivoire.

"We value the relationship with MainOne and trust that the upgrade will only lead to more successes and an enabled ICT ecosystem in the country,” Cherif continued.

Since it was founded in more than 20 years ago VIPNET has become one of the major Internet access providers in Côte d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso, and is known as the third internet access provider and first alternative operator in Côte d'Ivoire.

Noting rising demand for its services particularly in West Africa, earlier this year MainOne's data centre subsidiary MDXi subsidiary has launched its Appolonia Data Center

Etienne Kouadio Doh, country manager, MainOne said: “MainOne is happy to support VIPNET in its efforts to meet its business objectives in Cote d’Ivoire. We remain strongly committed to providing innovative ICT infrastructure, solutions and services that drive the growth of businesses and we continue to push for the growth and development of the digital economy in the francophone region.”
