SEACOM is a privately owned and operated pan-African ICT enabler that is driving the development of the African internet. SEACOM's vision has been built on the backbone of open-access and equitable principles.
SEACOM financed and developed the first broadband submarine cable system along the eastern and southern African coastlines, bringing with it a vast supply of high quality and affordable internet. Live since July 2009, SEACOM has seen more than a 10 fold increase in bandwidth penetration in several of Africa's most underserved nations.
SEACOM leverages its bundled backhaul, open access points of presence and global partnerships to provide high quality, cost-effective, end-to-end connectivity around the world. SEACOM also provides these services to land-locked countries in southern and eastern Africa.
Students were told the background of SEACOM and what the company has achieved and still hopes to achieve in Africa and beyond.
That is not all that Hatua students learned on that day, as they got an opportunity to talk face to face with Mombasa Senator Mr.Hassan Omar, who was also visiting the SEACOM company. The Senator took photos with the students outside SEACOM. The students asked the Senator many questions and he took time to answer them all.
