Globacom’s under-sea cable linking Nigeria with Europe has touched down in Lagos today September 5, 2009.
Before now, the entire country depended on only the SAT-3 cable under the monopoly of NITEL for cost-efficient high-speed access. Industry watchers have been in expectation of Glo-1 for months now, as its launch will undoubtedly impact on the cost and delivery of high-speed internet access in Nigeria.
Now that Glo-1 is here, when exactly do we begin to enjoy the services?
