Strive Masiyiwa wrote ( about Commission ) : "Covid can delay but it cannot deny! The last time I was in South Africa was February 2020. Among the things I did was to visit the construction site of the largest building we have ever constructed; 20MW Data Center in Johannesburg. It would be our fifth such facility in the country. It consumes more power than many major cities on the continent. Each facility is designed to use renewable energy provided by DPA, our power division. By the time I visited, work had already started and I looked forward to returning in a year's time to Commission it. Then Covid hit, and we had to stop construction several times due to lockdowns. We finally finished last week and our first customers began to put in their computers. During the same time we began a project of a similar size in Lagos Nigeria. We have now secured over $500m in equity and loans to build what we call ‘Project Decima'; the largest Data Center campuses in 10 African countries, each representing an investment of $50m. We call such large data center facilities ‘Hyper Scale', because they are designed to accommodate the needs of large global tech companies that support cloud based services. We offer our customers unique and unequalled innovation; each of these facilities is interconnected with our 100,000 km fibre network, that spans the entire continent.

Among the things I did was to visit the construction site of the largest building we have ever constructed; 20MW Data Center in Johannesburg. It would be our fifth such facility in the country. It consumes more power than many major cities on the continent. Each facility is designed to use renewable energy provided by DPA, our power division. By the time I visited, work had already started and I looked forward to returning in a year's time to Commission it. Then Covid hit, and we had to stop construction several times due to lockdowns. We finally finished last week and our first customers began to put in their computers. During the same time we began a project of a similar size in Lagos Nigeria. We have now secured over $500m in equity and loans to build what we call ‘Project Decima'; the largest Data Center campuses in 10 African countries, each representing an investment of $50m. We call such large data center facilities ‘Hyper Scale', because they are designed to accommodate the needs of large global tech companies that support cloud based services. We offer our customers unique and unequalled innovation; each of these facilities is interconnected with our 100,000 km fibre network, that spans the entire continent.
