More photos from Moroni and Mombasa

The EASSy cable landings at Moroni, the Comores and Mombasa, Kenya generated a huge amount of interest, both locally and internationally.

Here are some additional photos of the landing events:

The dignitaries observe the Mombasa landing with great interest

The opportunity to observe the landing of a submarine cable is for many a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The VIPs at EASSy’s Mombasa landing absorbed every moment…

 

Pulling ashore the EASSy cable at Mombasa

Not only did they get to observe; they actually had the chance to pull the cable ashore. Isn’t it amazing to think that the cable in their hands is capable of carrying 1.4Tbps of data – and most of what you can see is the protective covering!!

The Ile de Sein at Moroni, The Comores

 The Ile de Sein landed in Moroni on 23rd March 2010, bringing international high-speed, fibre-optic connectivity to the Comores for the first time, and connecting the islands into the global super-highway.

Over 9,300km of the EASSy cable has now been laid… next stop: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Do keep coming back for the latest updates…
