Down at the Swahili Cultural Centre in Mombasa testing the Seacom undersea cable. Just watched a live address from Tanzania, awaiting another from the other simultaneous launches across South Africa, Uganda and Mozambique.
Am sure what y’all want to know is the speeds: I just did a speedtest.net on it and ping 387ms, download 5mb mp3 file 39sec, 35mb video 5min.
Also awaiting address from Tanzania President Jakaya Kikwete. Video quality is amazing, no delays, perfect.
All IT types I have shared details on Twitter with amazed at the speed. Actually most are unbelieving if it is actually happening.
