The Orange Group has just announced their major investment in the West Africa cable system, MainOne.
Through the partnership, Orange will get the additional capacity to reinforce its position in the African telecommunications environment.
The current MainOne cable system, which was launched in 2010, encompasses a 7,000 submarine cable in Nigeria, Ghana, and even Portugal.
This partnership will deliver the installation and construction of two new branches and stations.
Accordingly, they can connect the cable to Dakar in Senegal and Abidjan in the Côte d’Ivoire by the mid-year of 2019.
Dakar will own the cable station due to its location and major milestone investment on this project.
This new cable installation brings advantages to the local people.
It will provide better and affordable connectivity, as well as access to new services for Orange Côte d’Ivoire and Sonatel.
MainOne provides a better alternate route to ensure the protection of all traffic passing through the other cables in the area of the continent.
The partnership with MainOne makes Orange a prominent figure in the submarine cable market.
Orange expects to improve the quality of services of its global networks and provide the new digital services use for end-users.
As its main commitment to Africa, the Orange Group makes its investment in building infrastructure and offering access to communication services for a long-term purpose.
The development of new digital services in Africa has brought big social and economic improvement for these past few years.
As a part of its multi-service strategy, Orange provides not only improved networks, but also low-priced equipment.
Through this partnership, Orange expects to secure as well as improve direct access to high-speed broadband services.
