The internet’s largest and most important — and yet unsung — champions are the privately-owned submarine cables that orbit the Earth. Land links between cities and cables that run alongside roads and into houses and offices are certainly impressive — and without them we wouldn’t have an internet! — but sinking a cable into the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, and even Arctic Oceans requires a billion-dollar logistical feat that requires years to enact. The Africa Coast to Europe Submarine ("ACE") cable began deployment in 2009 in its quest to build a submarine cable 17,000 Kms from Europe to Africa. Moya will connect the ACE capacity form South Africa and distribute its capacity throughout Southern Africa via its Backhaul Networks.
The low Data penetration rate in Africa clearly indicates the pent-up demand for broadband internet connections. Africa’s requirements for affordable broadband connections has exploded over the last decade. Applications such as Facebook, Skype and Mobile Money have fueled the rapid increase in customer data demand in Africa.
