Main One Cable Goes Live

Wednesday, July 07, 2010

Main One announced that its 1,920 Gbps, 7,000 km long, submarine fibre optic cable system linking West Africa to Europe has been completed and commissioned. With landing stations in Nigeria and Ghana and branching units in Morocco, Canary Islands, Senegal and Ivory Coast, the cable will deliver unprecedented broadband capacity to West Africa, more than ten times what is currently available in the region. With its cable system now in operation, Main One is poised to champion a broadband communications revolution in Africa. This will positively impact businesses, governments and individuals by providing higher bandwidth and exceptional speeds at a lower cost. The ramifications of Main One’s cable will be felt in all sectors: from education, through to health and entertainment, helping to driving economic growth and creating job opportunities all over Africa.
