Underwater cables bring faster internet to West Africa

Stretching some 7,000 kilometres along the West African coastline, a submarine fibre-optic cable emerges off the coast of Nigeria to help bridge the digital divide in the continent.Dubbed Main One Cable, the system links West Africa with Europe, bringing ultra-fast broadband in the region. It runs from Seixal in Portugal through Accra in Ghana to Lagos in Nigeria and branches out in Morocco, Canary Islands, Senegal, and Ivory Coast. -CNN
