Pccw would be sat3 glo1 and wacs maybe others.

Their looking glass can give you some idea into their reach with Nigeria with a little experimentation.

That said sat3 and glo1 combined have something like an order of magnitude less capacity than wacs so the survival / utility of any of the older systems when losing the newest ones is probably less than complete.
