The Reasons For New Fiber - Gambia Knows!

Wow - amazing - they are installing fiber on a route where they already have a fiber connection. Actually, not so amazing. What is amazing is that there was only one path since 1996 and it seems they have experienced cuts in the past which have disrupted service. A total loss of service is not acceptable in most places in the world. I am glad to see Gambia is making this investment. Full Story
