Sterlite Technologies, said, “Africa’s Telecom Industry is witnessing a surge in broadband network deployments due to push from multiple governments and Telcos to strengthen voice and data infrastructure. With mobile data traffic likely to increase 20-fold by 2020, we see growing opportunities to create smarter long lasting networks for African telecom operators and governments.” Highlighting Sterlite Tech’s research-backed capabilities in true broadband creation, he noted, “With our high-quality optical communication offerings, African telecom operators can drive mobile broadband deeper into urban and non-urban areas. This will boost internet economy, bringing a positive change in the everyday lives of the citizens.”
