subsea system

With a transmission capacity of 3.84 terabit/s, EASSY connects Mtunzini in South Africa to Port Sudan via Djibouti in Djibouti, Mogadishu in Somalia, Mombasa in Kenya, Moroni in Comoros, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, Toliary in Madagascar and Maputo in Mozambique.

This cable allows the countries of East Africa to be finally connected to the subsea superhighway network facilitating to more than 250 million people access to information and communication technologies at a price reasonable.

The Eassy consortium completed its financing plan in March 2007 and signed a contract to supply with Alcatel Lucent. Multilateral funding agencies led by the World Bank have put in place a mechanism that allows many operators to participate without having to invest large sums.
