Glo 1 continues to deliver uninterrupted internet solutions

Nigeria recently experienced widespread internet disruptions as a result of damage to some of the international underwater cables that provide the nation with connection. The outage affected banks and telecommunications organizations that depend on the impacted cables for internet services. 


Major undersea cables close to Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, were reportedly damaged, and this caused internet outages in West and South African nations.


The West Africa Cable System (WACS), the Africa Coast to Europe (ACE), MainOne, and SAT3 are the undersea cables that were impacted hence the disruption of services.


However, Glo1, which is owned by Globacom, the largest provider of digital services in Nigeria, was untouched by the damage and has continually been   running. Industry observers are of the view that Glo1 International Submarine Cable's resilient construction and durability are the reasons the damage did not compromise the cable.


Glo1-powered financial institutions, internet service providers, and data consumers have been carrying on with business as usual and have continued to provide service to their customers.

This development has been commended by a cross section of Nigerians, hailing the company for its commitment to delivering efficient services to millions of its subscribers.
