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.

http://lookingglass.pccwglobal.com/

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.

PCCW has a strong presence in Africa and they are easy to work with.

Hi All

Currently having a terrible situation in Nigeria where the GLO1 and
MainOne cables appear to be both down.
Can anyone suggest a good Nigerian ISP with redundancies enough to
overcome at least two of the following dying out?

SAT-3
WACS
GLO1
ACE
MainOne

Please dont say MTN or any of the Nigerian telcos, except there are no
other options, customer service will leave you trying to commit bodily
harm.
