The Hong Kong link of the 15Tbps Asia Submarine-Cable Express (ASE) has completed construction, joint contractors NEC and Fujitsu announced. The cable launched 40Gbps services on a route linking Japan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore in August 2012, and services will be upgraded to 100Gbps as demand dictates. According to TeleGeography’s SubmarineCableMap.com, Telekom Malaysia owns two fibre pairs on the ASE system, which it refers to as the Cahaya Malaysia system; NTT, PLDT and Starhub jointly own the other four fibre pairs on the cable, with landing points at Changi (Singapore), Daet (Philippines), Maruyama (Japan), Mersing (Malaysia) and Tseung Kwan O (Hong Kong).
