Somalia Suffers From Internet Loss After Ship Cuts Cable

Somalia Suffers From Internet Loss After Ship Cuts Cable

13 July 2017 - 12:00 - Update: 13 July 2017 - 23:54


Somalia's government has estimated that the country is losing US$10 million a day due to the damage caused by the Panama-flagged MSC Alice after it dragged its anchor through the main fibre optic cable at Mogadishu port on June 24, 2017. Around 6.5 million people have been cut off from the internet in Somalia's south-central region, adding to the damage caused by decades of conflict as almost two million people who earn money abroad are unable to send it home to their relatives. Geneva-headquartered Mediterranean Shipping Company, MSC Alice's owner, has said it is looking into the incident.
