Fiber opic capacity from to Europe to Asia via the African cost has always been quite slim by TransAtlantic standards. As I recollect, you have FLAG, SWM3, and SWM4. Those systems can push multi-terabits. Capacity is not fundamentally the problem, but rather the lack of competition.
Also you need a vibrantly competitive local loop market in these countries to drive undersea capacity demand. You don't have that yet, although it is emerging in countries like India.
