Telia Finland said it is installing an 800 metre fibre cable to connect the island of Vaskiluoto in the city of Vaasa to Palosaari University in conjunction with equipment manufacturer Eltel. Vaskiluoto's communication links are based on a bridge leading to the island, but ambitious development plans in the area require an expansion of connections. Plans for housing, industry and tourism should bring up to 4,000 new residents and 3,000 new jobs to Vaskiluoto.
