Paratus, the fastest growing and also the largest privately owned Pan African telecoms operator, has reaffirmed its position on the continent. The company is fast expanding and is fully licensed in 22 African countries.
As part of its fibre expansion programme, Paratus plans to invest a total of more than R150-million on infrastructure in Namibia over the next three years of which R100m will be invested in fibre infrastructure.
Paratus CEO Barney Harmse says Africa as 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.”
Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) has prescribed that all Namibian businesses should receive their billing from a licensed operator in Namibia. 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 concludes.
