Serving the economy

MASERU – ECONET Telecom Lesotho (ETL) is at the core of Lesotho’s economy. Econet has the longest fibre optic network in the Mountain Kingdom and is the supplier of choice for most business customers. ETL’s position as the partner of choice in the Mountain Kingdom is affirmed by its ability to respond to every call for broadband services from government and businesses regardless of their geographical location.

“We understand that communication services have become pivotal tools for businesses operations and the lifeblood of their growth,” Lebohang Ramaisa, General Manager Enterprise Business says.
“Econet is committed to investing in infrastructure that contributes positively in building sustainable enterprises, improving government services as well as the lives of ordinary Basotho regardless of where they reside.”

Ramaisa says, “this strategy is apparent in the way Econet enables most Lesotho’s large Enterprises, like mining companies, to have modern high speed broadband services in the very high mountains and deep valleys of this beautiful kingdom. These companies enjoy high speed connectivity with their head offices and other partners across the globe at all times. Most Mines, despite being located deep in the mountains of Lesotho, have extreme demands for both speed and availability of their broadband services.

Lebohang Ramaisa, General Manager Enterprise Business, says over and above ETL’s fiber network in the country, it is the diverse range of business solutions it offers, that has positioned it as the partner of choice to businesses and government.

“We have started working with Enterprises to improve their efficient use of the existing investment on broadband services by deploying the advanced VoIP and Telephone Management System’s that take advantage of the benefits brought by cloud based technology. This solution enables them to modernize their communications services experience, their budgeting and reporting.”
For the Small and Medium Enterprise, Ramaisa notes, ETL is putting together an affordable bundle which will enable them to make calls throughout the month, have Internet for their business and the ability to add security to their office network and building with midsize firewalls devices and surveillance cameras,

Data, he says, is now part of people’s lives. This explains why ETL has been pushing to provide Econet Fibre broadband services to residential areas. The thousands of Basotho in many Maseru residential areas already have fiber-to-their-homes. With this service, Basotho are able to enjoy high speed Internet WIFI at home at the cheapest prices compared to any other broadband service in the country. “We are saying data is no longer a luxury but a necessity. In a few years, most of the things we do in companies and in our homes will rely on data.”
“ETL is building its infrastructure to play a crucial role in that new era”.
The vision, according to Ramaisa, is to connect every home.

“We are fully committed to assisting Basotho and Lesotho businesses reach their potential despite challenges that the terrain and Lesotho’s extreme weather may pose. We invite all enterprises and businesses to talk to us about their communication challenges and we are confident that we have the right solutions to enable their enterprise”.
