MESSAGE FROM THE CEO
This year represented the culmination of a very long journey for SEACOM, on that has been filled with excitement, success and a fair amount of stress. Despite encounters with pirates and construction delays we managed to bring the cable to life within four weeks of our original ready for service date; while there were many who doubted this could be done, we are very grateful to all of those who never lost the faith and continued to believe in us.
SEACOM appreciates the continuous support we have received and continue to receive throughout the year from the media, the governments and of course, the people we are trying to reach...you. We receive numerous emails and messages through our website and blog of how we have touched or changed your lives and for us, this is our Dream becoming a Reality. We were confident that SEACOM would make a difference, but in some ways, we are surprised at just how fast things have changed.
In Kenya, we have seen bandwidth supply grow by 700%, in Mozambique by 850% and in Tanzania by 1000%. We have already seen an influx of new blogs and that to us means there are people out there willing to share and listen. We continue to learn so much from the end users and we will continue to open the forum to our partners in the hopes that one day they will also want to listen to what you have to say as you are their customer.
We also recognize that the advent of SEACOM has exposed numerous other bottlenecks. In 2010, we will set our sights on working with our partners to overcome those bottlenecks. 2010 will also be a year where SEACOM launches new products and continues to push the envelope to create a broadband world in Africa.
