Submarine cable to link Eastern Africa landed in Djibouti

The installation of submarine cable that is linking the Eastern Arica coast has been underway. The cable system is to comprise 5,400 km and is linking Djibouti, Mogadishu, Mombasa and Bosaso and deliver a capacity of 30 terabits per second.

The partnership between Djibouti and Kenya will see connectivity between the landing stations in Djibouti (Djibouti), Bosaso (Puntland), Mogadishu (Somalia) and Mombasa (Kenya) and enhance efficient communications.

Djibouti Telecom’s Director-General, Mohamed Assoweh Bouh, says: “We are looking forward to the cable’s operationalization later in June, this year, with competitive cross-connect and IP traffic transit costs between Djibouti, Somalia and Kenya, including capacity development and skill transfer.”
