Phases 2 and 3: A Connected Nation

Phase 2 will connect the two major metropolitan rings via Kananga, and see an additional cable stretch North towards Mongbwalu and the South Sudanese border. In the years to follow, the network will then expand along secondary routes to cover all corners of the country.
