The East African carrier Wananchi Telecom and Epsilon have partnered in a move that will see Wananchi expand its network and connect its East African customers to more than 170 countries worldwide.

Epsilon currently operates the world’s largest Global Network Exchange with 500+ operators. Wananchi will now be able to deploy these infrastructures in the latest partnership.

In a statement released on Epsilon’s website, Epsilon says “[it] has deployed a virtual point of presence (vPoP) in Telehouse East London and SmartHub Fujairah, UAE for Wananchi Telecom giving it access to more than 500 carriers and network service providers locally and internationally”

As part of the deal, Epsilon will provide a remote hands service for cabling, installations and PoP management. Meanwhile Epsilon will have access to Wananchi’s African network footprint, giving it greater local presence on the continent.
