Paratus plans to invest multi-million dollars into infrastructure development
Paratus is keen to invest a total of more than N$150-million on infrastructure in Namibia over the next three years of which N$100 million will be invested in their fibre expansion programme.
The company which is fast expanding, delivers products and services to 22 African countries and already has fully licensed offices in Namibia, Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Zambia and South Africa.
Paratus CEO Barney Harmse said Africa is one of the fastest emerging markets with enormous business opportunities. “As a fully licensed telecoms operator in all the countries where we operate, we are perfectly positioned to take advantage of this opportunity,” he added.
Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) has prescribed that all local businesses should receive their billing from a licensed operator in the country.
Paratus is working closely with its clients and operators to ensure that all billing is done locally and that all operations are in terms of regulations and that all regulatory requirements are being met.
“We work in close cooperation with the regulators in every country to ensure the services we provide are approved and licensed. Paratus is a reputable organisation, we cannot afford to be associated with or to do business with unlicensed service providers,” he said.
