Ooredoo announced to connect Tunisia to Marseille via the PEACE subsea cable. The new cable system will support the diversification of Tunisia’s international connectivity, wholly owned and operated by Ooredoo Tunisiak, set to be operational in early 2024.
During the ‘Capacity Europe’ event in London on 19 October 2022, Ooredoo Tunisia officially signed an agreement with PCCW Global, to deploy a new network solution, leveraging the PEACE subsea cable system connecting Tunisia with Marseille, thus opening a new gateway to Europe. The agreement – which gives Ooredoo total ownership of the latest global platform within Tunisia - promises to offer customers significantly enhanced data speed and quality at a vastly reduced cost, when connecting with Marseille.
Leveraging the high-speed, 15,000-km PEACE subsea cable system provides high-capacity, low-latency data connectivity for Tunisia’s market, in response to fast-growing demand
Through the investment in the PEACE Subsea Cable System, which is set to be operational in early 2024, Ooredoo will improve the diversity and choice within its international infrastructure, while making a new entry point to Tunisia available to global carriers and enterprises to meet their connectivity requirements in Tunisia and beyond.
This comes as part of Ooredoo’s strategy to find, establish and develop partnerships that enable the company to leverage technology and innovation to upgrade its customers’ world of opportunities.
The Mediterranean segment of the PEACE cable system, from Egypt to Marseille, has been ready for service since March, 2022, while its connectivity from Pakistan to France was completed in August
And the PEACE cable system will be extended further from Pakistan to Singapore.
