Djibouti Telecom Signs Accord With Level 3 on Internet Services

March 21 (Bloomberg) -- Djibouti Telecom SA, the Horn of Africa nation’s only mobile-phone operator, said it signed a partnership agreement with Level 3 Communications Inc. to provide an Internet network.

The agreement forms part of a plan to make Djibouti an “indispensable hub of telecommunications in the region,” Director-General Abdurahman Mohamed Hassan told reporters in the capital, Djibouti City, on March 19.

Level 3, based in Broomfield, Colorado, is a broadband-services provider.

Djibouti is about the size of Massachusetts. The country has a $982 million economy with fewer than 1 million people that relies on services related to its strategic location on the Red Sea, one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes, according to the U.S. State Department.
