Steve Song has put together a great interactive map that helps you visualize what undersea internet cables go where in Africa. There’s also a helpful table of statistics and data on each of the cables. Head on over to his site and check it out.

That’s super cool! I’ve found that African internet cables have become one of my bigger points of fixation as of late 🙂

Hey thanks Erik! In case anyone is interested in adapting or updating their own version of this map, you can download the source SVG file (CC-BY) which has the cables in individual vector layers.

I cannot wait till this all materializes. Zambia has been left out of the tech revolution for too long, and this is going to close gaps. Yaay!!!

I don’t understand this map fully. What about the interior countries? countries like Uganda, rwanda, burundi etc. Will they benefit from this project? Because it seems to me that only countries with a coastline benefit.
