I am working on Internet connectivity in Africa. The Africa Optical
Network (Africa ONE) is obviously a very important project in that
As far as I know the Africa ONE project was developed by AT&T Submarine
Systems in association with ALCATEL.
The existing literature indicates, that Africa ONE should start
operating in 1999.
Can you confirm whether this is the case or at which stage you are?
Further, does anybody have information as to how much the project costs
and who pays for it?
Thanks for your help
