Facebook will work for internet infrastructure
Today, Facebook, which has managed to go beyond being a social media platform, continues to offer innovative solutions. It also provides support to countries in need.
To this end, Facebook started working to provide internet infrastructure in Afirka. For this project named 2Africa, 6 telecom giant companies from different countries such as Vodafone have been reached an agreement. With the work to be done, a total of 37 thousand kilometers of internet infrastructure will be offered.
An internet line will be laid under the sea by Alcatel and one end of this line will end in England.
In this project, which will end in 2024, a total of 21 exits will be given in 16 different African countries. Thus, general internet infrastructure will be provided for the countries. Facebook, which previously made investments in countries such as South Africa and Nigeria, will add a new one to these investments with its internet infrastructure. Facebook will increase its effectiveness in the region with 2Africa.
