According to the commercial and marketing director of Angola Cable, Artur Mendes, who spoke to ANGOP, when the cable connection process is completed, there will be a greater speed in the use of existing Internet services in the country.

He believes that more than 50% of Angolan users will be able to feel the benefits of improving Internet services in the country.

He affirmed that the connection of the fiber optic cable between Africa and South America will allow a faster connection, because previously the connection was made Europe / United States of America / Brazil.

The submarine cable (SACS), consisting of 72 repeaters, is expected to have a capacity of 40 terabits / second, 10 terabits / each pair of fiber and 80 gigabits and will improve the connection function between Angola and Brazil.
