Electric board begins installing fibre

The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) has said the installation of a MWK2.1 billion (USD15 million) fibre-optic cable is underway. The cable, between Lilongwe and Blantyre is intended to ‘improve interconnectivity nationally, regionally and globally in a more secure and safe environment,’ said an Escom spokeswoman, adding that the company had already completed installation of a Salima-Kanengo fibre link and was leasing it to telecoms firms in accordance with a commercial operating licence issued by the Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA). She also said that a Salima – Mzuzu – Karonga fibre link was expected to be installed in 2009.
