Nearly 1,700 people have gone through the in-house training programmes since 2008. Today, the Company employs over 500 employees, of which 90% are women.
Similarly, IPS has invested in SEACOM, which launched Africa’s first broadband subsea cable system along the eastern and southern coastlines in 2009, bringing with it a vast supply of high quality and affordable Internet bandwidth. Connecting South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Kenya to the Middle East & Europe, SEACOM’s cable system also connects inland countries such as Uganda & Rwanda.
Since then, SEACOM has moved beyond being a cable operator to become a major pan-African service provider, offering a full suite of resilient and scalable data services that allow Africa’s growing ICT community to develop and evolve.
The SEACOM Business division leverages this infrastructure and last-mile partnerships to provide the African enterprise market with best-in-class connectivity and Cloud services at highly competitive prices.
