The capacity of VIPNET, an Ivorian telecommunications operator that provides connectivity services and technology integration solutions through the national broadband coverage, has been upgraded from 155Mbps to 1Gbps by MainOne, connectivity and data centre solutions provider.

“We are happy to support VIPNET in its efforts to meet its business objectives in Cote d’Ivoire. We remain strongly committed to providing innovative ICT infrastructure, solutions and services that drive the growth of businesses and we continue to push for the growth and development of the digital economy in the francophone region,” Maineone announced via its Country Manager for Ivory Coast, Etienne Kouadio Doh.

Over the years, VIPNET has positioned itself as one of the major internet providers in Côte d’Ivoire and they are known as the Third Internet Access Provider and First Alternative Operators in Côte d’Ivoire.

Thus, the upgrading by MainOne is seen as a commitment by VIPNET to provide the best connectivity and technology services to the Ivorian market.

“Operational excellence is imperative for the growth of all companies. MainOne has ensured we achieve and maintain our commitment to providing the best connectivity and technology services to the Ivorian market which has enabled us to maintain our position as a major internet service provider in Côte d’Ivoire,” said Ahmed Cherif, CEO, VIPNET said.

He added that with the relationship with MainOne, VIPNET trusts that the upgrade will only lead to more successes and an enabled ICT ecosystem in the country.

VIPNET became MainOne’s 1st local ISP partner in Côte d’Ivoire. Following a successful year, a request was made to upgrade its capacity provisioning as a result of MainOne’s world-class connectivity services and VIPNET business growth/expansion.
