Premier Oscar Mabuyane has announced that the 2Africa undersea cable will be landing in the Coega Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in the Eastern Cape, with other landings mapped for the Western Cape and KZN.
Delivering his state of the province address on Tuesday (23 February), Mabuyane said that the cable will have two immediate benefits for the province:
- The creation of a Focal Point for Digital Transformation; and
- The retention of ICT Skills that will have a multiplier effect in the Eastern Cape.
The premier said that a number of other companies have committed to digital growth in the province.
“Through the East London SEZ we are also rolling out an ICT Service s strategy that will see the development of a multi-purpose ICT hub.
“In addition to this, Liquid Telecoms South Africa has committed to establish an ICT academy in Mthatha which will broaden the participation of our people in the broadband connectivity project,” he said.
