Since putting our first fibre in the ground in 2009, our high-speed cross-border network has grown to over 110,000km of fibre. It is the continent’s largest independently owned network, offering connectivity to all the main subsea cable systems that link Africa to the rest of the world.
We are also the first to establish a direct terrestrial communication link between Cape Town, South Africa, and Cairo, Egypt – stretching the entire length of the continent and offering improved latency.
