Reporting from IGF - Egypt extending International Fiber cables -
Presentation by Egypt Telecom CEO (Mohamed Nawawy) shows that Egypt is taking the International fiber cable cut that happened on 2008 , very seriously as they are now extending many International Fiber cables for internet traffic. One of those cables is really unique with a capacity of 1.28Tbps (Tera Bit per Second) which is considered one of the biggest cables to secure un-interrupted to Egypt. These serious efforts will make bandwidth in Egypt even cheaper and will help a lot in breaking the digital divide.
