ACE submarine cable to land in Sierra Leone in October


The Africa Coast to Europe (ACE) fibre optic will land in Sierra Leone in October and become operational at that time, The Freetown Concord Times reported.

Project Coordinator of the West Africa Regional Communication Programme (WARCIP) in Sierra Leone Julius Kamara said the government succeeded in securing funding from the World Bank to ensure that the project would finish at the scheduled time. The cable connecting 22 other countries in Africa and Europe is expected to bring down telecom costs, promoting better communication among Sierra Leoneans and businesses.
