Cameroon wants to make its telecommunications network more robust. The 6,000 km of optical fiber currently available to the country are no longer sufficient to meet the needs of a population in growing need of quality Internet connectivity. Thanks to funding to the amount of three billion CFA francs, a program that includes among other things the installation of an additional 4 000 km of optical fiber to ensure the inter-urban optical fiber connection , especially in the cities of Yaounde and Douala , was launched this Tuesday.
The government’s objective is to bring technology into homes. This expansion of the fiber optic project has been approved by the government, who is convinced that economic development is closely linked to the quality of telecommunications infrastructure .
