Liquid Intelligent Technologies has successfully completed two key digital corridors - NLD5 and NLD6 connecting Durban to Cape Town via the inland route. The completion of this fibre network will support the surging demand for high-speed internet as an increasing number of local businesses continue their digital transformation journeys.
“The completion of these two digital corridors is another milestone achieved as part of our ongoing investment into the South African economy. Liquid has been instrumental in the fruition of routes 1 through to 8, providing a digital backbone that connects metropolitan cities like Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban to more remote areas such as Nelspruit, Bloemfontein, Ladysmith and Mthatha. This is also part of our group’s continued focus on bringing world class digital services like Cloud, Unified Communications, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to local businesses in the public and private sectors,” said Deon Geyser, CEO of Liquid Intelligent Technologies, South Africa.
Spanning over 1700 km, the near-unlimited capacity and greater redundancy offered on these digital corridors will positively impact numerous industries, especially educators and healthcare practitioners, as they increase their reach to the remotest parts of the country. Access to improved digital services will also impact the education system in the country as the government gears to empower more youth with digital skills as newer vocations develop through the 4IR.
Liquid recently culminated its extensive business transformation from being a telecommunications and digital services provider to a full one-stop-shop technology group. This expansion is one more step that reiterates Liquid’s commitment towards improving customer service and delivery of products towards the wholesale, enterprise and SMEs market in the country.
