The company, who offers a number of IP solutions to its service provider and operator customers, said it expects further growth for its business this year.

“During the past year, we have seen terrific progress. Our investments in West coast capacity, our African ring and meshed IP networks have started to come into their own – developments that have been really good for SEACOM’s customers," said SEACOM CEO Mark Simpson.

“Terrestrial fibre penetration has also improved and we’re seeing continued and essential access network developments across our markets. These factors helped us to grow in 2013 and will continue to fuel our evolution in 2014,” Simpson added.

SEACOM also launched an African IP Transit offering supported by its Remote Peering connectivity solution, it said.

"This allows our customers to leverage our large and growing African IP footprint to gain direct, cost-effective access to content and end-users located across the African continent. Because they no longer need to transit through off-continent locations, they’ll be able to reduce latency and network hops, furthering our goal of creating a truly African Internet," said Simpson.
