Internet users in Kenya and other parts of east Africa now have high-speed connectivity after the 17,000 km submarine fibre optic SEACOM cable owned and operated by the private Mauritius-based telecommunications company of the same name went live on 23 July. The project links South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Djibouti and Egypt to Europe and India.

However some industry professionals warn that the advent of broadband internet in the only part of the world not previously connected to the submarine fibre optic network may not lead to an immediate and massive reduction in prices as expected.
