International cable deal struck with Pacific Fibre

New Zealand will now have a second international internet link after Pacific Fibre struck a deal with US based cable company, TE SubCom.

Mark Rushworth, chief executive of Pacific Fibre said,

“Demand for international capacity in Australia and New Zealand is sharply increasing and is on track to continue growing for years to come,”

“The Pacific Fibre cable will not only provide unsurpassed high speed international connectivity to satisfy the growth in broadband demand, but it will also help Australia and New Zealand realize the potential of both countries’ multi-billion dollar broadband initiatives.”

If the plans stay to schedule, the cable is due to be operational by the first quarter of 2014.
