Algerie Telecom makes Djibouti call

23 Nov 2011

According to TMT Finance, Algerie Telecom is considering implementing an alliance with fellow state-owned telco Djibouti Telecom, with a view to exploring operational tie-ups across the African continent. The plan was announced by Algerie Telecom CEO Hachemi Belhamdi, following a visit by Djibouti’s minister of communications, Hocine Ahmed Abdi. Belhamdi claims that his company has both the manpower and material resources for the task.

TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database writes that, in recent years, Djibouti Telecom has carved itself a role as something of a regional telecoms hub in the horn of Africa, and at the time of writing four major submarine cables dock in Djibouti City, namely: the Eastern Africa Submarine System (EASSy), Europe India Gateway (EIG), SEACOM/Tata TGN-Eurasia and SeaMeWe-3. In addition, Djibouti is involved in the installation of a terrestrial fibre-optic cable linking Ethiopia to the aforementioned submarine cable systems.
