The new data center called MBA2, is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2022. It is expected to provide a capacity of 1.6MW megawatt and 1,200 square meters of IT space.

The data center is a part of its plan to grow its footprint in Africa and provide its internet services to approximately 1 Billion people.

“As a leading data center infrastructure provider, iColo plays a major role in supporting digital transformation strategies by enabling businesses to be connected and supported in real-time. This new facility will be the gateway to 200 Million people living in the region bringing the content closer to the end-user thereby reducing latency and improving the internet experience for all. The size of the facility is also scaled to reflect the huge growth in connectivity that is unfolding in East Africa. We hope this new Data Center will be home to all new cables landing in the region.”
