Paratus secures data gateway license, joins list of internet service providers


Paratus Zambia has been given the last available data gateway license in Zambia from the Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority (ZICTA).

The company in a write-up  obtained from TechTrends by Zambia  Monitor on Thursday  ,described the development  as  a big deal.

It stated  that the  only data license holders can now deploy international gateways, cross-border communications services, and import internet data traffic into the country.

This means that Paratus Zambia and the other five data gateway licensees in Zambia hold exclusive rights to import and export internet data capacity.

This service was previously limited to mobile network and carrier providers only.

Managing  director  Marius van Vuuren, said being awarded the last gateway license was  a major achievement for  the  company.

Paratus Zambia is part of the pan-African telecommunications company, Paratus Group.

“With this license, we can leverage our terrestrial and cross-border fiber network and satellite communications to provide high-quality internet services and import/export internet data capacity to other ISPs in Zambia,” he said.
