A new telecommunications cable from Fujairah to Kenya is being launched this week in Africa.
It will allow Internet service Providers in Africa a direct link between Kenya and other world destinations.
Previously Internet Service Providers have been routed through London but the Fujairah cabling offers a more direct link.
When connectivity is activated it will be up to each investor to decide the price and timing of their respective bandwidth on the cable.
Fujairah is becoming a key international communications hub due chiefly to its east coast location.
