Cable and Wireless Seychelles (‘CWS’) came into
existence in 1893, 125 years ago. Its existence and
history is tightly woven into the cultural fabric of
Seychelles, making CWS the most iconic business.
Almost everyone in Seychelles has a close friend or
family who is associated with CWS. CWS has evolved
with the people of Seychelles. It has been ever present
through easy and hard times, through peace and war
times, through happy and sad times, from colonial to
independent times; always serving Seychellois and
keeping them connected to each other and to the world.
CWS is not just a service provider, it forms part of the
kindred Seychellois community. This is why CWS cares
deeply about Seychelles and has touched and moved
generations not only by being an operator but also
through its extensive Foundation and CSR activities.
If you wanted to send a message from Seychelles to a
family member or business partner overseas in 1893,
the fastest way that you would do this is through a
telegram message. The alternative was by ship which
took several weeks or months. The telegraph enabled
family members in Seychelles to inform those abroad of
the birth of a new baby, the passing of those dear to us.

2 CEO’s Message

It enabled merchants to place important last-minute orders for goods to be put on
a ship headed towards Seychelles. Technological innovation came to Seychelles
in 1954 in the form of voice calls whereby one would place call from her house to
be patched (switched) to the recipient in another location in Seychelles through
copper network that expanded to cover most of the country. With excitement
and happiness, families would visit the telephone exchange once a week to place
international calls to loved ones overseas. Automatic switching of calls defined a
higher level of customer experience. CWS not only led all of this from the front, it
also led the introduction of satellite communications, mobile telephony, fibre optic
undersea and land cables and even radio entertainment.
Today, in these times of mobile data and big data, of Facebook, social media and
YouTube videos, of blogging and tweeting, of WhatsApp and Skyping, CWS connects
Seychellois: To the things that matter to them; To the people that matter to them; To
the content that matter to them. CWS connects lives to create moments, special
moments, moments that move our customers, moments that move us, moments
that make us proud to be CWS. By doing so, CWS makes people happy. CWS
has evolved from being in the business of telegraphs and telecommunications,
CWS is now in the business of HAPPINESS. CWS continues to demonstrate that
it cares for its community by leading the way with the best quality services. It is
the effort of each and every single one of you; from those on the front desk, to
those implementing projects, to those in the homes fixing faults, to those behind
the lines maintaining our networks. The CWS family all work together in delivering
happiness to our customers.
This yearbook documents our evolution over the last 125 years and most importantly
celebrates the hard work of our staff. I would like to personally thank all of you;
past and present, for your service, dedication and loyalty. This is what makes CWS
what it is today. Looking to the future with 125 years of experience in delivering
quality service to our customers. I feel like we will continue to develop, we are in
the everlasting business of bringing happiness to our customers. No one knows
Seychelles better - The choice is clear!
