It has just been announced that France Telecom SA has started a two-year contract to manage Ethiopia’s state-owned Ethio Telecom, Communications and Information Technology.

The Paris-based company will manage the utility, accounting systems will be modernised and new services introduced, also helping to boost the basic services at present in place and strengthen the infrastructure.

An underwater fibre-optic cable link via Djibouti will increase capacity and lower broadband internet costs.
