Telecom Egypt is building Egypt’s largest international data centre facility.

According to Egypt's first international telecom operator and one of the largest subsea cables operators in the region, the facility is expected to be commissioned in early 2021 with access to all the global submarine cable systems that land in Egypt.

The construction of the new facility has not been affected amidst COVID-19 pandemic and its setbacks on the economy, Telecom Egypt said in a statement to the Egyptian Exchange (EGX)

Telecom Egypt's new data centre is very well connected to all of the 10 Mediterranean and red sea subsea landing stations giving it access to more than 60 countries worldwide, the statement said.

Currently Telecom Egypt owns and operates six commercial data centre facilities located in diverse locations within Greater Cairo and Alexandria.
