Wednesday 30 October 2019 | 12:47 CET | News
Australian submarine cable infrastructure development specialist Sub.Co announced it has selected Subcom (formerly known as TE Subcom) to build a new international subsea cable system that will directly connect Muscat, Oman to Perth, Australia. Once completed, the Oman Australia Cable (OAC) will be the only express cable between continental Australia and EMEA, providing a secure, diverse and low latency route between the two continents. OAC will form part of a new "Great Southern Route" between continental US, Australia and EMEA, the Brisbane-based company said.
