BCS Group

Profile

BCS is a Mauritius-headquartered wholesale telecom infrastructure provider, operating under licenses in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Democratic Republic of Congo. We are also serving Burundi, South Sudan, Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique and Malawi at their respective border points. The Group owns approximately 5,000 km of terrestrial fiber in Uganda and up to 50 Gbps capacity in The East African Marine System (“TEAMS”), through its 1.25% shareholding in the undersea cable system. BCS Group also leases additional bandwidth to provide seamless backhaul connectivity and redundancy to the region’s telecom operators and Internet Service Providers. 

Since 2014, BCS Group has leveraged its construction expertise in several East and Central African markets, to build over 7,000 km of fiber networks for its own network and as an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (“EPC”) contractor for third parties.

BCS Group has established itself as a carrier neutral, open access and low-cost carrier, serving as a flexible and reliable wholesale provider with access into as many countries as the largest regional carriers. 

By virtue of operating its own network infrastructure, BCS Group has access to near-unlimited bandwidth with which to serve its growing customer base. 

BCS Group’s management estimates that the Group’s network carries one-third of the internet capacity in each of Rwanda, South Sudan and Uganda, measured by traffic volume. Our customers in these markets account for two-thirds of data subscribers and they use our services for about half of their capacity needs.
