Telstra purchases capacity on New Cross Pacific cable

Tuesday 15 January 2019 | 09:16 CET | News
Australian operator Telstra has added capacity to its subsea cable infrastructure with its first large capacity purchase on the New Cross Pacific (NCP) cable, and a further investment in the Faster cable. Back in December 2018, Telstra agreed to purchase a 25 percent stake in Southern Cross Cable Network (SCCN). Subject to definitive agreements and regulatory approvals, the agreement includes capacity on the existing Southern Cross network and new Southern Cross NEXT subsea cable - set to become the lowest latency path from Australia to the US.
