The 2Africa consortium has announced the addition of four new branches to the 2Africa cable.
The branches will extend 2Africa’s connectivity to the Seychelles, the Comoros Islands, and Angola, and bring a new landing to South-East Nigeria
The consortium, which comprised of China Mobile International, Facebook (Facebook.com), MTN GlobalConnect, Orange, stc, Telecom Egypt, Vodafone and WIOCC, in a statement on Sunday said the new branches join the recently announced extension to the Canary Islands.
It added that Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) has been selected to deploy the new branches, which will increase the number of 2Africa landings to 35 in 26 countries.
The statement read, “2Africa, which will be the largest subsea cable project in the world, will deliver faster, more reliable internet service to each country where it lands. Communities that rely on the internet for services from education to healthcare, and business will experience the economic and social benefits that come from this increased connectivity.
