Mainone seeks more investments in shared infrastructure, data centre
The Chief Executive Officer of MainOne, Funke Opeke, has highlighted the opportunity for increased investment in shared fiber network infrastructure and data center and cloud computing infrastructure in Africa.
This, she said was key to further unlocking the gains in the digital transformation of the continent. She spoke at the 2018 TMT Finance Africa Conference, a forum driving investment for telecoms, media and technology sector across Africa, held in Cape Town, South Africa last week.
Opeke joined panelists from DLA Piper, Teraco, PAIX and Rack Center to discuss the need for continued investment and growth within the telecom sector and data center market in order to realize the vision for increased ICT adoption in Africa.
She highlighted that MainOne, through its subsidiary, MDXi Data Centre has recently invested an additional N12billion in its Lekki data centre in order to grow its capacity from 300 to 600 racks as the leading data centre in West Africa.
