Telecommunications operator, Paratus this week said now offers its standard range of fiber packages to Gobabis businesses and residents.
Paratus recently completed a national fiber project, connecting from the WACS landing station in Swakopmund eastward to the border of Botswana and dropped off in various towns en route of which Gobabis was one.
Gobabis town council representative, Cllr Liberius Kalili, is proud to have Paratus come forward and address the requirement for our businesses and residents to move into the digital age with fiber-optic cable solutions.
“Gobabis can now look towards new opportunities provided by the Internet platform to grow the economy and we call upon entrepreneurs to support the investment made to elevate the town. This is a prime example of how mutual cooperation has benefits to both organisations,” he said.
Andrew Hall, Paratus Namibia managing director said it was a natural progression for Paratus to start connecting the towns en route of the first privately owned national backhaul fiber network through Namibia. “We will continue on our relentless drive to make investments towards elevating our citizens to gain access to fast and reliable Internet services.”
Paratus has already earmarked other towns en route to provide coverage utilising a range of access technology mediums ranging from fiber, fixed LTE, mobile LTE and microwave solutions. The telecoms provider also offers a range of satellite solutions for clients who are not in a coverage area.
“We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Kalili and the team in Gobabis who were very approachable to the idea of moving ahead with installing fiber infrastruture and their professional execution during the rollout of the first phase of fiber expansion in town,” said Hall.
“We are grateful for the wonderful reception of the residents and businesses and look forward to the success stories from the community,” he concluded.
Paratus’ standard range of fiber packages to Gobabis with capped and uncapped packages starting from N$620 for 100Mbps and N$785 for 10 Mbps respectively.
