Palau to get new undersea cable link

20 Jan 2014

The Palau-based wireless broadband provider Palau Telecoms has signed a letter of intent with equipment vendor Xtera Communications for the supply and installation of a submarine cable system to connect Palau to Guam. According to a report from Telecompaper, the system will provide high-capacity, fibre-optic connection to Guam, with onward connectivity to the US mainland, the Asia-Pacific region, Australia and New Zealand via interconnects with existing and planned submarine cable systems. The optical communication infrastructure will supplement the satellite links that currently serve Palau, allowing Palau Telecoms to increase the capacity, enhance the availability and reduce the latency of its services. The cable system is planned for completion in mid-2015.
