On 25 of May 2022 , Somcable Submarine Network welcomed the 2Africa cable to Berbera in a local ceremony hosted at the Somcable International Submarine Hub which was attended by the senior management team and Government officials of Somaliland.
This was the second submarine cable to land in Bebera in the month of May 2022.
2 Africa cable is the largest submarine cable to be built. According to the consortium, 45,000km is length and runs between 33 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia, with 46 landings it will be the longest subsea cable ever deployed, “serving communities that rely on the internet for services from education to healthcare and business, with all experiencing the economic and social benefits that come from this increased connectivity.”
The 2Africa subsea cable system together with its Pearls extension is designed to deliver international connectivity to approximately 3 billion people, representing 36% of the global population and connecting three continents, Africa, Europe, and Asia.
Somcable Submarine Network currently works on an open access policy which fits perfectly with what 2africa stands for ‘as quoted by Mr Said Mohamed , Vice Board chairman”, “We welcome all other international submarine cables whom are currently in planning or have existing and upcoming submarine projects to consider Berbera as its now quickly becoming an important strategic location in the Horn of Africa.”
