Our history

A business of Cassava Technologies, Liquid Intelligent Technologies began life as the satellite and voice operator Econet Satellite Services, which was founded in 1997.

In 2009 we went on to launch our high-speed, cross-border fibre network linking Southern Africa to the rest of the world. And today we’ve grown to provide services to more than 50 global wholesale carriers operating in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa, Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, as well as the national and international enterprise market.

Operators and users alike are seeing the benefits of our reliable, cost-effective communications infrastructure. In 2021 we rebranded from Liquid Telecom to Liquid Intelligent Technologies, achieved the milestone of being the first African organisation in emerging markets to have over 110,000 km of fibre network on the continent.

In 2021 when Cassava Technologies was launched, it became Liquid’s holding company. Most recently, Liquid acquired Telrad Group a technology organisation with operations in Israel, Europe and Latin America. This move was part of our overlaying strategy to build a global technology organisation born in the African continent.
