Google’s Umoja Subsea Cable to Connect Africa and Australia

Google invests in the Umoja subsea cable, enhancing connectivity between Africa and Australia, fostering digital innovation and cybersecurity.

Google plans to invest in a new submarine fiber optic project called “Umoja,” which will connect Africa and Australia for the first time. “Umoja” means “unity” in Swahili, reflecting the project’s aim.

The cable will link several African countries, including Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa, improving connectivity resilience and redundancy.

In addition to building infrastructure, Google will collaborate with Kenya’s Ministry of Information, Communications, and Digital Economy to enhance cybersecurity, promote data-driven innovation, and develop digital skills, alongside deploying AI for societal benefits.

Google has not specified the timeframe for completing the “Umoja” submarine cable.
