"All candidates for small Internet providers in the country, who competed for the Acelera Net program, have already received training from Angola Cables", can be read in a statement sent to VerAngola.
The note states that the training took place on the 17th and 18th of March, in which 16 small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) "candidate to provide internet in locations that are difficult to access and less explored by the largest telecommunications operators" were trained.
Any Connect, NeoNet, HSAMS – Soluções Tecnológicas, NetKamba and SITGROUP were some of the companies that attended the training, which was attended in person and virtually (via Teams).
Cited in the note, AnyConnect CEO Maximino Paca said the course exceeded expectations.
"These two days were gratifying for my team and for our company. We have a great challenge in Angola to make communication reach everywhere", he said.
In turn, Pedro Sozinho Neves, director general of NetKamba, stressed that it was "two days of a lot of learning", having challenged Angola Cables to carry out an evaluation in half a year "to see what companies have managed to implement".
The statement also mentions that the Acelera Net program was developed by Angola Cables with the aim of "enabling small and medium-sized Internet providers with technical and specialized training, instructing the best business management practices in order to allow SMEs to fulfill the requirements to access bank financing".
The program, which has the support of the State through INACOM and the Ministry of Telecommunications, Information Technologies and Social Communication, "is committed to creating conditions for the promotion and sustainability of the businesses of Angolan digital entrepreneurs", completes the note.
