ACE - Africa Coast to Europe submarine cable

Africa Coast to Europe or ACE is an optical-fiber submarine cable system serving 24 countries on the west coast of Africa and Europe, managed by a consortium of 19 members. The ACE cable connects more than 400 million people, either directly for coastal countries or through land links for landlocked countries such as Mali and Niger. ACE is the first international submarine cable to land in Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Mauritania, São Tomé and Príncipe and Sierra Leone. Agreements are being put in place to allow the arrival of other operators in countries along the ACE cable route. Guinea-Bissau is the next country to be connected to the submarine cable. ACE Consortium consists of telecommunications operators and member countries that have invested in the total 700 million dollars project, sometimes with the financial support of the World Bank; the consortium agreement was signed on 5 June 2010 and on 15 December 2012, this 17,000 km-long cable was put into service for the first time. The official inauguration ceremony was held in Banjul, Gambia, on 19 December 2012.

The 4 to 5 cms diameter cable has a potential capacity of 5.12 Tbps and runs at around 6,000m below the sea level. It has been laid by ships from ASN and Orange Marine; the cable cost consortium members $700 million: ACE Gabon Bénin ACE GIE Cable Consortium of Liberia Canalink Dolphin Telecom Gambia Submarine Cable GUILAB SA International Mauritania Telecom MTN Orange Orange Cameroun Orange Côte d'Ivoire Orange MaliOrange Niger Gestor de Infraestructuras de Telecomunicaciones de Guinea Ecuatorial Republic of Guinea-BissauSALCABSonatel STP Cabo Segment 1 France, Penmarch Portugal, CarcavelosEspagne, île de TenerifeMauritania, NouakchottSenegal, DakarSegment 2 Senegal, Dakar Gambia, Banjul Guinea-Bissau, Suro Guinea, Conakry Sierra Leone, Freetown Liberia, Monrovia Ivory Coast, AbidjanSegment 3 Ivory Coast, Abidjan Ghana, Accra Benin, Cotonou Nigeria, Lagos Cameroon, Kribi Equatorial Guinea, Bata Gabon, Libreville Sao Tomé et principe, São ToméSegment 4 Congo Angola Namibie South Africa This 17 000-kilometers long cable is the only one connecting 24 west African and European countries.
