Mauritius Telecom continually invests in its network infrastructure to improve the experience being offered to its customers through better coverage, increased reliability, resiliency and enhanced data speeds with a purpose of connecting everyone to what is essential to them and enriching lives.
Mauritius Telecom is focused on connecting people to the increasingly digital world. The network redesign and increased internet speeds of up to 100 Mbps resulted in an increase in the use of ICT services. With deployment of fibre to home, Mauritius Telecom has placed Mauritius as the Eighth most fibred country in the world in terms of connectivity and the first in Africa. More than 300,000 households now have access to our fibre-based services. To cater for increased demand for popular contents, new points of presence have been installed in strategic locations in Europe and Africa and content providers such as Google, Facebook, Netflix, Akamai and Cloudflare are hosting their caching servers in MT’s Content Delivery Networks.
MT continues to extend connectivity through modernisation of its mobile access network to provide island-wide 4G LTE coverage and ultra-fast mobile broadband access. Our mobile subscribers can now benefit of fibre-like wireless broadband on-the-go experience.
A new Online Charging System platform was recently implemented to offer more flexible and innovative prepay and post-pay services. Our aim to completely digitalise mobile recharge services.
Connecting Mauritius to the World of Information
MT’s international network is based on an advanced globally interconnected infrastructure linked by sub-marine fibre-optic cable systems like SAFE, LION and EASSy, as well as by satellite. In order to respond to the increasing demand for bandwidth, major upgrades were carried out on the international submarine network to further increase reliability, resiliency and bandwidth capacity. For onward capacity, MT has also invested sub-marine fibre-optic cable projects such as the Europe-India Gateway (EIG) and the West Africa Cable System (WACS). MT looks forward to investing in other key projects in the region to meet the increasing demand of the ICT BPO sector and of customers connecting to bandwidth-hungry services.
Mauritius Telecom has made history by connecting Rodrigues Island to the rest of the world, one year in advance, through the Mauritius and Rodrigues Submarine (MARS) cable system which will revolutionise access to ICT services for the people of that island.
