SACS cable nearly 50% completed

Monday 20 February 2017 | 10:16 CET | News
Work on the SABC fibre-optic cable is already 46 percent completed, according to Angola Cables, reports Angop. Extending for more than 6,200 kilometers in the South Atlantic, the cable will connect Luanda to the Brazilian city of Fortaleza, connecting directly the African continent to Latin America for the first time. SACS will be connected to the Monet cable system, which goes to Miami, Florida, making it possible for Angola and Africa to be directly connected to the US. The SACS subsea cable system is planned for completion in 2018.
