Togocom and CsquaredWoezon seal deal to boost internet access in Togo

(Togo First) - Mobile operator Togocom and public-private joint venture CsquaredWoezon signed a partnership agreement agreement on November 9. Under the deal, the joint venture, which manages Google’s "Equiano" submarine cable in Togo, is to supply 30 gigabits of bandwidth to Togocom over a 10 years, via the cable. The partnership will help Togo bolster its internet offering.

"The main interest of this partnership between Togocom and Csquared is to obtain a new international route for all Togolese customers, which will enable them to obtain a better quality of service and better availability of the Internet connection.", said Pierre-Antoine Legagneur, Togocom General Manager. "This new cable, based on cutting-edge technology, will offer faster Internet, and we will be able to increase capacity as our customers' needs evolve," he added.

Also commenting on the agreement, Csquared's country head noted that "recently, minor disruptions have affected Togocom's network. By signing this partnership with Csquared, such interruptions will never happen again. As a result, Togolese citizens will always be able to count on quality connectivity."

Togocom already had similar agreements for the WACS (West African Cable System) and ACE (AfricanCoast to Europe) submarine cables, for Internet provision. By taking advantage of Csquared's offer, the cell phone company and Internet service provider should be able to offer a total bandwidth of 130 gigabits to consumers in Togo.

In Togo, the Equiano cable has been operational since August 2023, according to CsquaredWoezon.
