Angola Cables opening a point of presence in South Africa

Angola Cables, which is building the Monet and SACS cables between the Americas and Africa, will launch a point of presence in South Africa.

Angola Cables has announced its first direct point of presence in South Africa at Teraco in Johannesburg, which is expected to be operational in December.

“As part of establishing Angola as one of the leading hubs for Internet connectivity in Africa, we’re growing a strong IP ecosystem among countries in Southern and Western Africa, as well as South America,” said Antonio Nunes, CEO of Angola Cables.

With the establishment of the Monet Cable between Miami and Fortaleza and Sao Paulo in Brazil in 2017, as well as the laying of the South Atlantic Cable System (SACS) between Angola and Brazil in 2018, Angola Cables will offer the lowest latency routing between Africa and South America.

“Beyond the connectivity between Africa and the Americas, the first South Atlantic route to connect these continents will also provide a reliable new route to customers in Asia in the South Hemisphere, as well as a range of connectivity and content services to global organisations,” said Nunes.
