During its general annual meeting on April 28, 2019, in Côte d’Ivoire, MainOne announced the extension of its submarine optical cable and the opening of its data centre in the country in October 2019. These announcements were made by Kazeem Oladepo, Business Executive for MainOne French-speaking countries in the West African region and in Ghana.

Once the extension is realised, the submarine cable should facilitate inter-regional connectivity in West Africa and boost the region’s economy.

According to MainOne, the submarine cable and the data centre will contribute to the development of the broadband connection thanks to the affordable digital services they will offer.

“By investing in this infrastructure, we expect to provide significant and essential IT solutions to firms and let them improve their productivity and efficiency thanks to dedicated and reliable connectivity services,” Kazeem Oladepo said.
