The Lower Indian Ocean Network submarine cable (LION2) operated by Orange Kenya went live last week. The cable is 2,700 km long and it is an extension of the initial Lower Indian Ocean Network that connects Madagascar to the rest of the world. Lion2 has a maximum capacity of I.28 tbps and can be increased without additional submarine work… LION2 has increased the capacity of submarine cables connecting Kenya to the outside world to 8.56TB/s..

So the big question is, will Kenyans realize the long promised reduction on the internet prices, now that all the fiber cables are here?
