Orange announced plans to invest EUR 35 million on a submarine fibre-optic cable which will deliver additional bandwidth capacity in the French overseas markets of Guyana, Martinique and Guadeloupe, starting from the second half of 2018. With a capacity of 5 Terabits per seconds, the 1,900 km cable will interconnect with the existing ECFS network to meet the expected growth in internet traffic and ensure a good quality of service for Orange and other ISPs, for which access offers will be made available.
