Who is Bayobab?

Bayobab is a next-generation services company connecting Africa with digital solutions. We see Africa through the eyes of its’ population, a continent brimming with potential and possibility. Until May 2023, the company was known as MTN GlobalConnect. The transition to a new brand is a shift to an open-access business model structured to serve all industry participants and add value to stakeholders and partners.

Accessing the world’s fastest growing markets has never been easier.

Bayobab represents a renewed commitment to Africa’s digital connectivity through continued investment in much-needed infrastructure that connects Africa and the rest of the world together.

Bayobab's Fibre Footprint across Africa.

Bayobab’s subsea cable network winds ashore at landing stations on the coasts of East, South, and West Africa. From there, they spread out to form an open-access digital doorway into Africa through Bayobab’s expanding terrestrial network.

Inspired by Africa's Iconic Tree

The Baobab tree has inspired us with its resilience and longevity. We are committed to bridging the digital divide by opening our digital doorway for global partners, host governments, and local communities to thrive.
