A new submarine cable between Africa and Europe

France Telecom-Orange announced in October 2011 the landing in Penmarc’h, Brittany, of ACE, the new submarine cable serving 23 countries by linking France to South Africa.

The Africa Coast to Europe (ACE) submarine cable, initiated by France Télécom-Orange and administered by a consortium of 17 operators, will link Europe to the West Coast of Africa through an unprecedented connectivity. Efficient and competitive, this 700 million dollar system uses the most advanced high-speed broadband fiber optic technology and will be a vector of social development and economic growth in Africa, reducing the digital divide.

Targeted to be operational in 2012, the ACE cable will provide access to the global broadband network for the first time for Gambia, Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Liberia, Mauritania, Sao Tome and Principe, and Sierra Leone, making possible the launch of new services.
