The submarine cable project aims to considerably expand the capacity, quality and availability of Internet connectivity between the African continent and the world, writes Angop.

According to a communiqué from the operator, cited by Angop, what is considered the largest submarine cable system in the world is designed to provide continuous international connectivity to about three million people, mirroring 36 percent of the general population, linking three continents (Africa , Europe and Asia).

It should be noted that 2África is the result of a consortium made up of the companies Meta (Facebook), Vodafone/Vodacom, China Mobile International, Orange, Center 3 (STC), WIOCC, MTN GlobalConnect and Telecom Egypt, with Unitel taking on the role as the only operator in Angola to join the consortium.

Thus, according to Angop, via its national fiber network, the company will be able to provide access to this submarine cable to telecommunications companies in the country, as well as in nearby countries, such as Namibia, Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia.
