Indeed, it is a co-operative affair owned by several of the incumbent 
telcos along the route, and one suspects that they engage in all of the 
sort of benevolent, community-focussed behaviour that you'd expect from 
incumbents.

On a more serious note, and peering / interconnection arrangements aside, 
the cable fault indicates a critical lack of resilience on the west coast 
of africa.
