Construction began in November, 2001, with the city being promoted as a new information technology hub for Mauritius and as a link between African and Asian markets -- as a result is referred to as Ebene Cyber City.
Ebene is a cable landing point of the SAFE high-speed submarine communications cable between South Africa and Malaysia. It is also the home of AfriNIC, the Regional Internet Registry for Africa, and other IT companies.
Famous quotes containing the word city:
“This city is neither a jungle nor the moon.... In long shot: a cosmic smudge, a conglomerate of bleeding energies. Close up, it is a fairly legible printed circuit, a transistorized labyrinth of beastly tracks, a data bank for asthmatic voice-prints.”
—Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
