Our aim is to become truly global and help the hyperscaler and enterprise community to digitalise customer journeys and optimise networks and cable systems. Our people, agility and personalized customer experience set us apart from other regional service providers and demonstrate the value of our global network to develop unique, customised connectivity solutions that meet customer needs,” said Veer Passi, Group Chief Executive Officer at Kalaam Telecom.

Our highly available and low latency global network makes our presence truly unparalleled. As a testament to this success, we are thrilled to announce our expansion and focus into Europe. The demand from wholesale carriers to establish a seamless connection between Europe and MENA is palpable, and we take pride in offering an unrivalled customer experience that surpasses all expectations. Our goal is to extend this unmatched level of service to a broader range of wholesale carriers, enterprises, and hyperscalers globally.
