SEACOM has signed a Master Services Agreement with Telecomunicações de Moçambique (TDM), the leading telecommunications service provider in Mozambique. This agreement gives SEACOM and its customers access to the largest and most distributed fibre optic network in Mozambique as well as a diverse route into Zimbabwe and additional border presence into Malawi and South Africa.

Through this agreement, customers in Zimbabwe are able to interconnect to the SEACOM system in Maputo via Mutare. This additional route through Mozambique complements SEACOM’s existing route through South Africa via Beit Bridge and provides Zimbabwean customers with resiliency and redundancy.

Brian Herlihy, SEACOM CEO, said:  “This agreement with TDM demonstrates our commitment to partner with established players to improve the range of service to customers whilst continuously expanding the reach of SEACOM’s low cost services into land-locked countries across the region.”

SEACOM believes in a world where the African Internet experience is characterised by abundant local content, minimal latency, fast download and streaming speeds, and interconnected African markets. Today, over a dozen countries across the African continent have access to SEACOM’s low cost products and services via its extended network.
