Africa’s Terrestrial Transmission Network Reaches 1 Million Kilometres During 2015

2015/6 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks has more than doubled in the last five years, and passed the milestone of 1 million route-kms during 2015. The seventh annual edition of the Africa Telecom Transmission Map published by Hamilton Research shows that by June 2015, the inventory had increased to 1,019,649-km.

In the last five years, network expansion has brought more than 176 million more people within access to high capacity national and international backbone networks. In June 2015, 45.8% of the population in Sub-Saharan Africa (436 million) was within a 25-km range Read More →

Africa’s International Bandwidth Reaches 3 Tbps In 2014, On Target For 4.5 Tbps By Dec 2015

2015/6 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s international Internet bandwidth reached the 3 Tbps mark by December 2014, according to the seventh annual edition of the Africa Telecom Transmission Map published by Hamilton Research.

At current growth rates, Africa’s international bandwidth will reach 4.5 Tbps by the end of 2015. Already by June 2015, Kenya had reached 789 Gbps according to the Communications Authority, an annual increase of Read More →

Africa: 91,182-Km of Metro/ FTTH/ FTTB Fibre Network in Africa, and Counting….

Africa FTTH Council Africa Survey and Africa FTTH Map Launched

52 African countries are now connected to submarine cables, either directly or by terrestrial cross-border fibre optic networks. 44% of Africans live within a 25-km reach of a fibre node. But which cities and suburbs now have fibre-to-the-home, and how many homes and offices are plugged directly into the world’s fibre optic backbone?

The FTTH Council Africa, in partnership with Africa Bandwidth Maps, announces its intention to conduct annual research to track FTTH/B penetration. Read More →

Africa’s International Bandwidth Passes 2 Tbps

2014/5 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks has more than doubled in the last five years. The sixth edition of the Africa Telecom Transmission Map shows that by June 2014, the total inventory of terrestrial transmission networks had increased to 958,901 route kilometres, compared to 465,659-km in 2009.

Over the same period, Africa’s international Internet bandwidth increased twenty-fold, and has passed the 2 Tbps mark. By December 2013, Africa’s total international Internet bandwidth reached 2.034 Tbps, a 38% increase compared to 2012. This total of 2.034 Tbps was split between Sub-Saharan Africa, which increased by 39% to reach 1.138 Tbps, and North Africa which increased by 36% to reach 896 Gbps. Read More →

Africa’s International Bandwidth Jumps To 1.479 Tbps

2013/4 Africa Telecom Transmission Map Published

Africa’s international Internet bandwidth sailed past the 1 Tbps mark during 2012, and jumped by 84% to reach 1.479 Tbps by December 2012. The increase seen during 2012 was driven principally by growth across Sub-Saharan Africa: the total of 1.479 Tbps was split between Sub Saharan Africa, which increased by 127% to reach 821 Gbps by December 2012, and North Africa which increased by 50% to reach 658 Gbps.

A key factor underpinning this bandwidth growth has been the expansion of terrestrial fibre networks inland. In the last year alone, an additional 25 million people across Sub-Saharan Africa were brought within reach of a fibre optic node. Read More →
