GABORONE, Botswana, August 14, 2023/ — Liquid Intelligent Technologies
(https://www.Liquid.Tech/ [4]), a business of Cassava Technologies, a
pan-African technology group, is proud to announce the launch of the
Gaborone Metro Ring, a world-class, high-capacity, high-speed, and
secure telecommunication network that will empower local businesses,
providing a huge boost to Botswana’s economic growth.

The Metro Ring is being rolled out in two phases and aims to benefit
hundreds of businesses in its initial phase, with further connections
planned for phase two. “The launch of the first phase will reduce
tariffs for local and international data products, making it more
accessible to small and medium businesses that have previously been
disadvantaged as compared to the larger enterprises,” says Odirile
Tamajobe, Managing Director of Liquid Intelligent Technologies Botswana.

Increased access to high-speed fibre connectivity is critical to
improving not just telecommunication services for businesses and
individuals but will also bring about substantial social and economic
benefits. By providing an extensive and efficient telecommunication
network, this project plays a vital role in the growth and expansion
plan of the region.

It will also generate employment opportunities and contribute to the
overall development and expansion of the national economy. Specifically
targeting high-density areas of Gaborone, this project is set to
revolutionise telecommunications and support the surging demand for
high-speed internet as an increasing number of local businesses continue
their digital transformation journeys.

“This project is a major milestone in Botswana realising its potential
as one of Africa’s growing economic hubs. The completion of the first
phase reinforces Liquid’s commitment to meeting the growing demand for
connectivity and aligns with our vision of a digitally connected
Botswana in which no one is left behind,” states Tamajobe.

The project also supports the government’s strategic plan, Botswana
Vision 2036, to elevate the country’s economic status from
upper-middle-income to high-income within the next 13 years. It serves
as a prime example of progress towards Botswana’s ambitious goals
through technological development.

The Metro Ring represents a significant achievement in Gaborone’s
telecommunications infrastructure, showcasing the successful
collaboration between the public and private sectors to advance
technology for the benefit of Botswana. The Metro Ring symbolises Liquid
Botswana’s high-level digital infrastructure capability and continued
and unwavering commitment to steer and create sector growth
opportunities aggressively whilst increasing its market share.
