Google And Facebook To Build Underwater Cables Around Africa

Facebook’s quest to connect more of Africa may have it practically encircling the continent.

Wall Street Journal sources maintain that Facebook is in talks to run an undersea data cable (nicknamed Simba) that would run around much of Africa.

Details are few and far between, but it might link to existing beach access points in countries along the eastern, northern and western coastlines with the help of telecoms like MTN Group and Vodafone.

This would help improve access to Facebook for more of the continent and might just lower the social network’s data costs by cutting out in-between companies.
