In recent years, the world has witnessed the digital industry not just grow, but come to dominate everyday life in most developed countries. Daily functions have become more reliant than ever on dependable connectivity. However, as is typical with a widespread industry growth of this magnitude, some regions don’t adapt as rapidly as others, for any number of reasons. Certain parts of Africa are a prime example of this, with approximately 22% of people across the continent having access to reliable connectivity. This begs the question; what can telecommunications enterprises do to bridge this digital divide, in a way that is also mutually beneficial to their business?

Unitas Global, the leading managed multi-service network and cloud access provider, and Liquid Intelligent Technologies, a pan-African technology group present in more than 20 countries, proudly announced their strategic partnership to create a mass network of interconnected data centres in the sub-Saharan African market. Together, the two companies better position themselves to meet the accelerating demand for versatile Cloud solutions in the region.
