Telecom Egypt to complete Egypt’s largest international data center in 2021

State-owned Telecom Egypt (TE) plans to bring Egypt’s largest international data center online in 2021, local press reported. The data center will be connected to TE’s 10 Mediterranean and Red Sea subsea landing stations, connecting with more than 60 countries worldwide and allowing Egypt to make use of its unique position as a subsea internet cable hub. TE announced last year that it would be building four to five data centers in the coming two years in the new administrative capital, Alexandria, Smart Village and Suez. The company currently runs six data centers in Cairo and Alexandria.
