Group Vivendi Africa enters Burkinabe telecom market

(Ecofin Agency) - Group Vivendi Africa (GVA) officially launched its broadband connectivity operations in Burkina Faso last June 3. The technology proposed by the company for its CanalBox offers - FTTH (Fiber to the Home)- brings optical fiber directly to the customer, whether an individual or a business.

"What we give is the speed, we do not talk about mega," the company said. According to the Burkinabe Minister of Digital Economy, Hadja Fatimata Ouattara, access to broadband Internet is an ambition of the Burkinabe government. She welcomed the arrival of GVA, which will increase competition and offer users more choice.

"The proposed price will impact the e-communication market because, although it’s a regulated market, the price details are dictated by competition. We, therefore, welcome the arrival of a new player in this sector and, of course, what we expect is a better quality of service and to ensure that the Internet is democratized, "she added.

GVA's entry into Burkina Faso's ultra-broadband segment fits with the company's African expansion strategy that started in 2017. the country is the sixth African market to welcome GVA, after Gabon, Togo, Côte d’Ivoire, Congo, and Rwanda.

The service is already available in Ouagadougou, the ZACA Zone, Koulouba, Paspanga, Nimnin, Cité en III, Saint Léon, Kamsonghin, Samandin, Bilbalogho, 1200 logements, Dagnoën, Kalgondin, Wemtenga. The deployment will continue in several other districts of the capital, including Wayalguin, Zone du Bois, Zogona, Dassasgho, Gounghin, Pissy, Petit Paris, Karpala.

Armand Sato, MD of GVA Burkina Faso, said: "We are coming here, not to be just another operator, we are coming to be the best. Everything will change in Ouaga because GVA has a mission to democratize the Internet in homes.”
