Success is Never an Accident

GDS Technologies was founded in 2004, originally established to address the evolving ICT needs in Africa. Its founding members, being intimately involved with the evolution of GSM Networks to GPRS then EDGE and ultimately 3G, spotted the potential for a niche-market leader to develop and direct innovation and discovery.

Today GDS Technologies boasts with strong business relationships with Tier One Operators across Africa, through various network areas. GDS Technologies drives customer profitability through innovation and a guaranteed level of customer service.
