As of March 14th, over 6,500km (nearly two-thirds) of the EASSy cable had been successfully deployed into the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. The cable has now reached Toliary in Madagascar, where the shore-end is being laid. The two cable laying ships are heading for Mombasa and Moroni (in the Comores), where they are scheduled to arrive before the end of March.
