BON Hotels announced the signing of its 12th hotel in Nigeria, further increasing the company’s presence and footprint in West Africa and making the group the largest hotel management company in Nigeria, with additional opportunities still in play. Together with acquisitions in East Africa – in Uganda and Ethiopia - and continued growth prospects throughout the continent to add to their South African and Namibian portfolio, including the doubling in size of the 5-star boutique hotel BON Hotel Abuja to 60 bedrooms, which is about to commence, and the current upgrades and refurbishments under way at their existing hotels, Director of BON Hotels International West Africa (BHIWA) Bernard Cassar says the group remains committed to moving onwards and upwards and continuing its growth trajectory in the region. The two new hotels currently under construction are being built to international standards and specifications with the latest technology and facilities. BON Hotel Lekki, situated on the Lekki Peninsula, Victoria Island, is due to open in June 2018 and will provide a 4-star, international, 45-room hotel catering to the corporate and business market. The second acquisition is BON Hotel Elvis Wuse2, a 4-star, 85-roomed, luxury hotel located in the heart of Abuja, primed for the business traveller, due to open later this year. CEO of BON Hotels Guy Stehlik says that within a short space of time the group has become a number one player in Nigeria, which just reiterates their belief in and commitment to the region. He adds that BON Hotels’ success has been made possible largely by the experienced staff in place and the considerable time and energy the group has engaged in skills development and transformation in Nigeria. “The reality is that we have gone from having no presence in the area to becoming the largest operator, based on hotels, in less than 12 months, which demonstrates our primary strength at identifying and managing hotels under difficult . . .

Experts at the International Telecoms Week conference in Chicago have highlighted the need to accelerate investment in Africa to facilitate the continent’s broadband data explosion. Based on the theme “Achieving A Connected Continent: Leading The Data Explosion Across Africa”, the expertpanel session with participation from Google, Facebook, WIOCC, Liquid Telecom and Angola Cables discussed strategies for achieving improved broadband access across the continent. The session reviewed the state of broadband infrastructure and data traffic trajectories in different countries on the continent and made comparisons to other markets globally. This included areas in which investments had been made such as submarine cables, data centers, and access networks including 3G4G and FTTH networks as some of the elements that have accelerated the growth in data traffic on the continent. The consensus was that the data explosion will need to be driven by further investment in local networks to reach more end users rather than new submarine cables. The session revealed that while most African submarine cable systems had the capability to deliver 100 GBPS wavelengths, Africa has not utilized near enough capacity to saturate those systems. According to the panelists, for broadband to become more pervasive, there is need for continued investment and innovative business models to aid the rapid deployment of Access networks across the continent. Facebook’s Regional Head, Africa for Express Wifi, UcheOfodile shared the company’s experiences working with carriers to jointly make infrastructure investments and highlighted its initiatives in Uganda, where it is working with Airtel to deploy fiber backhaul, but noted that demand and favorable regulatory environments informed their decisions to invest. The need to go beyond mobile infrastructure was also highlighted by the CEO of Liquid Telecom, Nic Rudnick, whose company just completed its acquisition of South African operator, Neotel for . . .
