Submarine Networks and the Digital Transformation of East Africa

Before 2009, only 16 African countries were connected to a submarine cable system.

But in 2016, submarine cable capacity reached 33 countries; seven sub-Saharan countries had access to three or more systems.

Today, Africa leads the globe in international bandwidth growth. This has been facilitated by improved international connectivity along the critical Europe-to-India-and-Asia submarine corridor that connects East Africa to the rest of the world.

Our own Paul Brodsky will be joining forces with Ciena and Djibouti Telecom on March 23 at 11:00 a.m. ET for a live discussion on this topic.

Submarine Cable Growth: Fashions from Yesteryear

We recently shared the pricing workshop and interconnection sector review our team presented at PTC '22.

But wait—there's more!

TeleGeography VP of Research Tim Stronge was on the scene to answer three questions about the submarine cable buildout boom.

Capacity Middle East Takes an Inside Look at 2Africa

2Africa has been a hot topic since it was announced in May 2020.

And if this cable is on your radar, you might be interested to know that TeleGeography's own Paul Brodsky will be moderating the panel Subsea Middle East: An Inside Look at 2Africa at Capacity Middle East next month.

New State of the Network Report Examines Telecom in a Time of COVID-19

Believe it or not, with 2022 comes our fifth State of the Network Report.

If this is your first State of the Network rodeo, think of this e-book as an annual telecom check-in, informed by another year of data collection and analysis from TeleGeography’s larger research portfolio.

As usual, we extract the major global bandwidth headlines, take a snapshot of the global internet, peruse the latest in data centers, check in on the cloud, and finish with an update from the voice market.

There’s no other way to put it. This State of the Network Report is a weird one.

Love Is Brewing—and So Is Another Geomagnetic Storm

Happy Valentine's Day to you, beloved reader. Or Discount Candy Day Eve, as some of us like to say.

Love hurts, after all. But for a recently-launched fleet of Starlink satellites, a geomagnetic storm hurts even more.

Price Trends to Watch in 2022

"The two most predictable trends in the bandwidth market have been persistent demand growth and price erosion."

For PTC '22, Senior Research Manager Brianna Boudreau took a look at the most common pricing questions we've gotten over the past year to think through how they might play out in 2022.

In previous iterations of this workshop, our first question would not be if prices are falling, but by how much?

Where Is the Cloud Moving in 2022 and Beyond?

It can be hard to encapsulate what's going on in the data center market at any given point in time.

There's so much happening in so many places, driven by so many different factors.

But never fear, Jon Hjembo is here—with the development trends and pricing expectations that he delivered during his review of the interconnection sector at PTC '22. 

A Volcanic Eruption Cut Tonga's Only Undersea Cable Connection

Cable faults happen fairly often and for a variety of reasons.

Most of the time, damage to submarine cables comes from human activity—primarily fishing and anchoring. But environmental factors can also cause a cable to break. 

This just happened in Tonga, where an underwater volcanic eruption and subsequent tsunami damaged the country's only undersea cable. Early reports indicate that it could be a few weeks before the necessary repairs are made. More on that below.

Open Connect, the Red-Nosed Reindeer

It's that time of year again. The time to string up twinkle lights, pour eggnog in your coffee, and cozy up on the couch with your favorite holiday film.

Back in the day, you'd be dusting off the box in your attic marked "Christmas movies." Today—thanks to streaming services—all you need is your trusty remote.

But how does this actually work? Keep scrolling for insight on how Netflix delivers its content globally.
