Glo signs agreement with Huawei to lay submarine cable

Nigerian telecommunication giant, Globacom, has signed an agreement with Huawei to lay another trans-Atlantic submarine cable to augment the existing Glo1 cable.

The Agreement was signed on Tuesday.

The second submarine cable will consolidate Globacom’s ambitious plan to comprehensively transform Nigeria’s ICT landscape, and it will significantly increase broadband penetration in the country.

“Glo 2 will be the first submarine cable in Nigeria to land outside Lagos as the five existing submarine cables only landed in Lagos. Glo 2 will have capacity of 12 Terabits per second and will provide ultra-high speed connection to oil platforms and communities to empower data coverage and support enterprise market growth in this part of Nigeria,” Globacom’s Regional Director, Technical, Mr. Sanjib Roy, said at the signing ceremony in Lagos.
