Paratus Group, a prominent telecommunications entity in Africa, has recently inked a deal with BSO, a trailblaser in infrastructure and connectivity for major financial corporations globally, marking BSO as the inaugural client for the innovative Paratus Express Route 

This state-of-the-art fiber optic pathway is celebrated for its unprecedented speed, linking Johannesburg to Europe with a remarkable latency of merely 123 milliseconds.

BSO, renowned for its ultra-fast connectivity services catering to sectors where time is of the essence, now boasts an augmented portfolio thanks to the Paratus Express Route. “We are excited – not only to be the first customer on the Paratus Express Route but also because this reinforces our promise of providing the fastest and most reliable connectivity solutions across the globe,” expressed Michael Ourabah, CEO of BSO.

This strategic and groundbreaking partnership is pivotal, offering the most expedited latency route from Johannesburg to London, catering to the critical needs of enterprises.

Spanning from Johannesburg to Swakopmund and passing through Botswana, the Paratus Express Route taps into the Equiano subsea cable system, ensuring a seamless connection to Lisbon, London, and broader Europe. Paratus’ significant investment in a comprehensive and varied fiber network solidifies a premier route that promises exceptional performance and dependability for network service providers and their corporate clientele.

“Our partnership with BSO underscores the value of the Paratus Express Route for network service providers and their financial services clients. By combining our local expertise with global reach, we are uniquely positioned to meet the critical connectivity demands of the financial industry. Our express route also marks a significant milestone on our journey to transform Africa’s digital landscape and to support the growth of the financial services sector,” stated Martin Cox, Chief Commercial Officer at Paratus Group.

The Paratus Express Route not only delivers unparalleled velocity and efficiency but also serves as an essential alternative conduit for network operators, diminishing the repercussions of possible fiber disruptions between Johannesburg and Cape Town. As the Equiano Subsea Cable’s landing associate in Namibia, Paratus ensures robust and varied network solutions for its customers.
