"The AfricaConnect2 project comes at a time when the demand for adequate bandwidth and network services from researchers, lecturers and students at West and Central African higher education and research institutions is extremely high.
There is no doubt that the project will adequately satisfy that demand through the provision of advanced network infrastructure and services, thus creating an enabling environment for quality teaching, learning and research. This will significantly transform the R&E landscape in West and Central Africa.”
