Google Lands First Subsea Cable In Africa To Promote Digital Access

Mar 24, 2022

Digital Times Nigeria – Togo becomes the first West African nation to receive the cable -Submarine conduit will link Africa to Europe via Portugal -Google has $1 billion plan to build African digital capacity Share Post Google has landed a submarine cable in Togo, the first nation in West Africa to introduce commercial fifth-generation (5G) mobile services. Bloomberg reports that the Equiano subsea internet cable, part of Google’s $1 billion program to build digital capacity on the continent, was connected to the nation of 8 million people on Friday. The conduit will land in Nigeria, Namibia and South Africa later this year, linking Africa to Europe via Portugal. The new cable is expected to help Togo double internet speeds by 2025 and reduce Internet prices by about 14%, according to research from Africa Practice and Genesis Analytics commissioned by Google. “Our vision is to become a digital hub and we need connectivity,” Togolese Digital Economy Minister, Cina Lawson said in a March 15 interview. “We’re going to have an awful lot of capacity through this cable. We’re going to be able to retail capacity to other countries.” Once operational, the cable will offer 20 times more bandwidth than any other country in West Africa, and help create almost 37,000 new jobs by 2025, Africa Practice and Genesis said. “That kind of Internet speed puts you on the same level of competitiveness as your counterparts in the western world,” the head of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, Vera Songwe, said in a separate interview. Togo has among the highest mobile data costs on the continent at $8.64 per gigabyte, according to the Alliance for Affordable Internet, a partner to the World Wide Web Foundation, a U.S.-based non-profit that advocates better internet access. By increasing internet speeds, Togo also hopes to attract new businesses, such as data centres, and help grow the country’s startup industry, Lawson said. Digital Hub Togo is already a logistical hub in West Africa with the region’s biggest port and both pan-African lender, Ecobank Transnational Inc. and regional carrier Asky Airlines headquartered there. The country plans to become a regional digital hub through a national digitization programme, Togo Digital 2025, that aims to foster economic development by focusing on increased connectivity. The landing “affirms Google’s commitment to the African continent, to support Africa’s digital transformation” and “aligns with the country’s continuing efforts to promote digital inclusion for Africa,” Google Sub-Saharan Africa Managing Director, Nitin Gajria said in the statement. Togo became the first country in West Africa to launch a 5G network in 2020. Internet penetration in Togo almost tripled in recent years, from about 7% in 2017 to about 20% in 2020, according to World Bank data. “It’s not so much about the technology, but the fact that we’re going to have so much capacity and that it’s going to be so cheap and so fast,” Lawson said. “The price of internet access will decrease while the capacity that people have at home will also increase.” Share Post Published Pioneer broadband service provider, Smile Communications Nigeria, has just introduced a new Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) service, an innovative self-help service, for its teeming subscribers.

Share Post Over Half World’s Population Now Using Mobile Internet- Report GSMA Research Shows 3.4 Billion People Do Not Use Mobile Internet Despite Living in Areas with Mobile Broadband Coverage Share Post Photo Credit: GSMA website On Tuesday at the MWC Africa in Kigali, Rwanda, the GSMA launched its global State of Mobile Internet Connectivity Report 2021 showing that, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, more than half of the world’s population is now using the mobile internet. Mobile internet usage translates to just over 4 billion connected people,  225 million more compared to 2019, and up from a third of people globally just six years ago. Even with this impressive growth in mobile internet connectivity, both in terms of mobile internet coverage and usage, the report highlights that work must accelerate to bridge the digital divide. Of the 3.8 billion people who remain unconnected, only 450 million people do not live in areas with mobile broadband coverage, (“the coverage gap”). The coverage gap represents a significant improvement year on year. The far bigger challenge is the 3.4 billion people who live in areas that are already covered by mobile broadband, but are not using it, (“the usage gap”). The report examines trends in the coverage and usage of mobile internet over the last six years and identifies the key barriers to mobile internet adoption. It also looks at the early impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the most significant regional effects. Finally, it makes recommendations to help close the digital divide and ensure greater access to mobile internet connectivity. “The COVID-19 pandemic made clear the importance of mobile internet access to people’s lives and livelihoods and has accelerated the digital transformation around the world. “Mobile is the primary and often the only way to access the internet in low- and middle-income countries. While more people than ever are now using the mobile internet, some fundamental barriers stop far too many people from using mobile internet.
