SEACOM To Access Burundi Through Rwanda

SEACOM will use Rwanda's national fibre-optic backbone to achieve onwards connection to Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo. SEACOM and government-owned Rwandan ISP New Artel are reported to have signed a one-year 620Mbs connection agreement, with a possibility of extending it further at a later date.
The Rwandan national fibre optic backbone, which will extend to over 2,300km, aims to connect 97 government agencies in the capital and 226 government agencies in other districts.
