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.
