Orange Opens Large Scale PoP in Abidjan

Orange inaugurated West Africa’s first, very large-capacity IP Point of Presence (PoP) in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.

This paves the way for other carriers and local ISPs to offer Internet connectivity in the region at much faster speeds and with better reliability than has been available to date.

Abidjan also hosts a landing point for the ACE submarine cable, a 17,000km-long cable which runs down the west coast of Africa from Europe.
