Telstra investments to boost network leadership in Asia Pacific

(businesspress24) - Honolulu, USA, 22 January 2018

The first investment will see Telstra partner to build the new Hong Kong Americas (HKA) cable that will connect Hong Kong to the US. Telstra will invest in a half fibre pair.

Once completed, the HKA cable will help meet the increasing demand for connectivity between Greater China, ASEAN and the US.

Telstra also announced it had invested in capacity on the Pacific Light Cable Network (PLCN) that will also connect Hong Kong and the US. The investment will be the equivalent of 6 Terabits per second (TBps).

The two cables will deliver lower latency due to being more direct routes between the US and Asia than the current Asia-America Gateway (AAG) on which Telstra operates the most active capacity today.

David Burns, Telstra


These investments follow the announcement in April last year that Telstra had entered into a consortium to build INDIGO, a new subsea cable system between Australia and South East Asia.

The HKA cable is expected to be completed in 2020 and PLCN in 2019.
