Comores Telecom has announced that it increased its international Internet bandwidth to 10 Gbps during 2018. The operator previously reported 5.598 Gbps in December 2017 (2 x STM16 + 1 x STM-4), and 2.488 Gbps in 2016 (1 x STM-16). Comores Telecom has been connected to the EASSy submarine cable since it entered service in July 2010. The operator had an initial activated capacity of 180 Mbps on the EASSy cable for the first year of service (see Comoros: Comores Telecom To Build Inter-Island Submarine Cable, Connected To EASSy at 180 Mbps), which was increased to 310 Mbps in 2012, 465 Mbps in 2014, and 900 Mbps in 2015 (see Comoros: Comores Telecom’s International Bandwidth Reaches 900 Mbps, 2015).

Comores Telecom also announced that it upgraded capacity on its national fibre backbone and the Avassa submarine cable system connecting Comoros with Mayotte from 2.5 Gbps to 10 Gbps (see Comoros: Huawei Completes ‘Avassa’ Submarine Cable Connecting Comoros And Mayotte). Meanwhile, Telma Comores which was granted the second telecom licence in October 2015, initially activated one STM-64 circuit (9.953 Gbps) on the EASSy submarine cable when it launched commercial services in December 2016 (see Comoros: Telma Comores Brings high Capacity Fibre Connectivity To Comoros).
