Globacom owns Glo 1,  which is not  affected by the damage and has continued to operate normally. Data users, internet service providers and financial institutions which run on Glo 1 have continued to operate normally.

Industry observers believe that the damage did not compromise the Glo 1 International Submarine Cable due to its durability and strong construction.
