Angola Cables is a telecommunications operator engaged in marketing international voice and data circuits through subsea fibre optic cables. We are data centre operators as well. Our goal is to contribute to a global access to knowledge and information, through digital technology. Therefore, we keep on developing our network and ensuring that our customers and partners have access to the latest generation of communication technology.

We are the ideal partner for those who need international connectivity and high-quality Internet services, for those who want to be connected to information highways, as well as to host their IT systems in a safe, available and reliable place as regards their operation. We contribute to the development of successful companies and businesses, to bring communities together and to connect people. We believe that our infrastructures and connectivity network are an important factor for globalization and which allow us to play a relevant role in the progress and development of the existing communities in the areas of action of our customers and partners.

We are developing two digital interconnection poles (data centre in Fortaleza and Angonap in Luanda) interconnected by fibre optic subsea cable systems connecting the African, American and European continents. This high-capacity digital interconnection ring will be able to provide a unique solution for redundant interconnection around the Atlantic to the different agents in the market.                      

It is our intention to connect, thereafter, this ring to the Middle and Far East, making the Angola Cables solution a unique product of worldwide interconnection.
