Liquid Technologies and Facebook to construct fiber optic network in DR Congo

Liquid Technologies and Facebook have partnered to build a fiber optic network in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). As part of the project, a digital corridor is expected to stretch from the centre of the DRC,  across the rainforest, to connect East Africa to the submarine cable 2Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. In order to improve the quality of the infrastructure and accessibility to digital services to some 30 million people, the cable is expected to cover 2,000 kilometres of terrain.
