120mbps broadband services launched by Telecom Namibia


Selected areas of Namibia are enjoying a newly launched broadband service with a speed of 120mbps. The WACS (West Africa Cable System) became fully operational in 2012 and since then has rolled out a sequence of upgrades to its broadband service, with the Namibia service being the latest of these.

A company spokesman said: “Using fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband technology, the 120 Mbps download and 40 Mbps upload Speedlink LitePlus service will be available from today (19 September 2014) for households and businesses at Maerua Mall in Windhoek, the Swakopmund CBD area and the Omeya Residential and Golf Estate, with plans to gradually expand the service to other towns and business districts in the country.” Namibia’s low rates of internet penetration form the backdrop to the country’s broadband infrastructure upgrades.
