Africa requires access to global submarine network infrastructure to fully benefit from an international digital economy bearing in mind that submarine cables carry close to 99 per cent of the world’s intercontinental electronic communications traffic

This was the submission of the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of MainOne, Anil Verma at an event where MainOne, a leading provider of connectivity and data centre services for businesses in West Africa, joined founding submarine operators, Ciena, to discuss Africa’s emerging submarine cable market and its impact on broadband penetration.

The CTO highlighted the critical role that MainOne has been playing in deepening broadband penetration and enabling digital growth in Africa.

He said the Company maintains over 50 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Africa and Europe that move data traffic across her network and her Tier III data centre subsidiary – MDXi, with headquarters in Lagos.

He further disclosed that the company lands her submarine cable in Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire where she equally operates data centres (in Accra and Abidjan).

“The combination of a submarine cable network, terrestrial metropolitan fibre infrastructure, data centre assets, and broad interconnect ecosystem makes MainOne a key enabler of digital transformation across West Africa,” he said.
