    Business | August 21, 2009Tanzania Telecom linked to fibre optic

    Dar es Salaam
    Tanzania Telecommunications Company Limited (TTCL) has announced that it’s fully connected to the International Submarine Optic Fiber Cable System, the local newspaper the African reported on Wednesday.

    TTCL customers now have access to the fastest communication services in Tanzania, Chief Executive Officer Said A. Said was quoted as saying.

    All TTCL internet traffic was switched to go through the submarine cable effective July 28, five days after the cable was officially launched, according to Said.

    As a result of this development, Said said that TTCL customers will experience high speed content download and browsing, enhanced availability of service and improved quality of services.

    On July 23, SEACOM announced that its 1.28 terabytes per second, 17,000 km submarine fiber optic cable system linking south and east Africa to global networks via India and Europe has been completed and commissioned.

    The launch of SEACOM opened up unprecedented opportunities as the government, business leaders and citizens can now use the network as the platform to compete globally, drive economic growth and enhance the quality of life across the continent at a small fraction of the current costs.

    Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, who was present at the launching ceremony, promised Tanzanians state-of-the-art internet connectivity, declaring the country has entered a new era in telecommunications.The Dar es Salaam point links the country to a marine backbone fiber.

    From the city, the network will extend to the rest of the country and to neighboring Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda.
    By December this year, Tanzania expects to have laid down more than 7,000 feeder km of the network in what promises to be a real milestone in information and communication technology.
