The project covered the construction of a 4352 km fibre optic network, covering 8 provinces, 33 states and 43 important regions. The construction period was 2 years. Until 07 July 2018, a 360 km fibre optic route from Kankan to N'zerekore had been completed, via Kerouane and Beyla. In addition, the cable routes of Conakry-Mamou, Mamou-Labe, Mamou-Kankan, Conakry-Boke had also been deployed. 90% connection from Faranah to N'zerekore via Kissidougou-Gueckedou-Macenta was complete, while 92% of the Boke-Gaoual-Kounsitel-Popodara-Labe route was complete. The project responded to Belt and Road Initiative.
