Telstra adds capacity to subsea cable network

Wednesday 30 January 2019 | 18:47 CET | News
Telstra said it added substantial capacity to its subsea cable infrastructure with its first large capacity purchase on the new-generation New Cross Pacific (NCP) cable, and a further investment in the Faster cable. The company said these investments strengthen its Japan to the US route and confirm its subsea cable network as the largest in the Asia Pacific. Telstra Enterprise Group Executive Michael Ebeid said Telstra's investments were part of a long term strategy to capture data demand across Asia and the Pacific.
