SAIL has come to reiterate the position of Camtel as the mother Telecommunication giant in Cameroon and Africa and also to ascertain the rapid development of Cameroon’s digital economy. This implies that, with Camtel, telecommunication services will be upgraded: high speed internet, low cost internet connectivity.
With the SAIL project, the General Manager of Camtel pin-points that, “the project also entails having data centers and applications, including artificial intelligence, that third-parties and businesses will be able to use. It means making our country a genuine hub in Africa, the place where all the communications arrive, and the place where all the communications leave for the sub-region and throughout Africa.” As well as developing the agriculture vertical, stronger broadband infrastructure will underpin Cameroon’s digital 2020 strategy, in which CAMTEL is playing a central role.” David Nkoto Emane is convinced that SAIL will help balance the connectivity scales for Africa’s 54 nations and also create a stronger bond with South America. “This project is essential not only for CAMTEL, but also for Cameroon and for the whole of Africa,” he says.
