Hammer Fiber is now constructing networks in Sierra Leone and Dominica.
The first phase of both networks, which includes the deployment of wholesale voice and SMS services in each market, is progressing on schedule, according to the company. PoP selections have been made and network equipment has started shipping.
Hammer announced that the first services in these markets would be available in its third fiscal quarter, ending April 2019.
“Hammer has now entered its next phase of development,” said Erik Levitt, Hammer’s CEO. “The acquisitions made last quarter have been fully integrated, and we now look forward to building into the new markets we have established.”
Hammer announced its partnership with Wikibuli to deploy its wholesale network and retail wireless facilities in Dominica in December of 2018. The announcement of its first deployment in West Africa in Sierra Leone followed in January.
“We will grow organically in our new markets as well as through acquisition,” Levitt added.
