Verizon Business Allies With Gateway for African MPLS

October 25th, 2010 by · Leave a Comment

Verizon Business, the international networking arm of Verizon (NYSE:VZ, news, filings), announced today an alliance with Gateway Business that will bring it MPLS connectivity to 14 additional countries in sub-Saharan Africa.  Gateway Business is a Vodafone Group (NYSE:VOD, news, filings) company which bills itself as the leading pan-African wholesale provider, but I’m still looking for a network map to give me a better idea what sort of assets they have.  Which new countries, you ask?  Well, for the geographically unstudied and those who like me prefer a visual depiction, I put together a quick map:

If it’s blue, it’s on Verizon’s list now:  Angola, Botswana, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.  Seems like a pretty good start.
