Cable from South Africa to the UK

Cable from South Africa to the UK<br />

The national broadband company of South Africa, Broadband Infraco has managed to secure some heavy weight partners for its undersea cable project. The cable will be running all the way from South Africa along the west coast of the continent up to the UK.

The agreement is due to be signed by Telkom, Neotel, Tenet, Tata Communications, Multichoice, Vox Telecom, Internet Solutions, Gateway Communications, Equator Telecom Nigeria, and British Telecom on the 15th April. It is believed that the private sector will share a 74% stake in the enterprise.

The idea of this project is to allow the partners to provide broadband services to the areas that have landing stations, which will probably be around twelve. This will mean that there will be a competition for business, which in turn will see the prices charged drop considerably and make the competing businesses provide better services.
