Axian Telecom has highlighted four key priorities in a five-year plan to accelerate growth for its newly acquired unit in Tanzania from Millicom, which it pledges will be backed by significant investment into infrastructure.
The group said a key component of its growth strategy will be to bolster infrastructure over the next few years, reported CommsUpdate.
This will first support the company’s deployment of cutting edge technologies and services to boost the desire for digital transformation by companies in Tanzania. Axian noted it and consortium partners have access to major backbones and submarine cables to support faster international connections.
Secondly, more affordable connectivity services will be made available as a result of infrastructure investment which the company pledges will be a strong 4G connection.
Next on the agenda is the driving of financial services which have proven to be quite a popular service among operators in Africa. Axian will look to develop bespoke services that meet Tanzanian needs, drawing from successful launches from its other markets.
Lastly, the company will aim to develop and nurture talent with a strong focus on mobility, agility, training and shared knowledge among employees of the merged unit.
Axian now has a foothold in eight markets: Madagascar, Comoros, Reunion, Mayotte, Senegal, Togo, Uganda and Tanzania.
