The EASSy Fact file…

EASSy is a 10,800km submarine fibre optic cable system

  • 2 Fibre pairs of 1.4Tbps capacity
  • Initially 8 Landing Stations:
  • South Africa
  • Madagascar
  • Mozambique
  • Comoros
  • Tanzania
  • Kenya
  • Djibouti
  • Sudan
  • Construction cost $265 million
  • Operational mid – 2010
  • WIOCC owns 30% of EASSy
slide4

EASSy cable is in the water !

  • Two pronged approach to cable lay to shorten lay period.
  • The Southern Cable Ship ILE DE SEIN is past Djibouti Landing Station and is laying towards Mombasa . Expected arrival - first week of April.
  • The Northern Cable Ship ILE DE BATZ began laying from Mtunzini in South Africa on 12th Feb.
  • The two ends are expected to join by the 3rd week of April.

Cable Laying will be complete soon

Cable Lay progress…

… as of 22nd Feb 2010

slide7
Fibre will become the primary connectivity medium for Internet & International connectivity for the East Coast of Africa.

International Bandwidth Prices are set to fall as WIOCC capacity becomes available when EASSy lands on the East Coast

Multiple systems will bring much needed network diversity and resilience and greater competition

Bandwidth buyers are adopting a “wait and see approach” or are pre-buying WIOCC capacity for Q3 2010 delivery at significantly reduced prices

Market Realities

WIOCC is offering 2010 price reductions now
