Glo-1 cable launch moved to November

19 Aug 2009

West African undersea fibre-optic cable system Glo-1 has reportedly delayed its commercial launch until November, after missing previous target dates of March and May, CommsDay writes. Globacom, which is building the network connecting Nigeria to Europe, says Glo-1 has run into technical difficulties, including licensing issues with governments, and a lack of skilled staff.
