SUBMARINE CABLE

​I didn’t know:

“….The EASSy cable – short for Eastern Africa Submarine Cable System – is a 10,000 kilometre cable that runs the length of the continent’s east coast. It’s the highest capacity line serving sub-Saharan Africa, and in addition to the Madagascar site, coastal connection points also are located in Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti, as well as on Comoros.

Those points serve a network that reaches as far inland as Khartoum in Sudan or Kigali in Rwanda, among other cities.”
