Reliable High Speed Internet in PNG expected as Dataco announces the use of Coral Sea Submarine Cable

THE Coral Sea Submarine Cable (CS2) connectivity between Port Moresby and Sydney is up and working now, according to PNG DataCo Ltd.
PNG Dataco said in a statement that its team that would operate the system in PNG had hands-on training with the contractor, and as part of the training, powered up the link to get connectivity up and working last Tuesday.
The company said its engineers would carry out tests on the link for a month before trialling traffic.
Managing director Paul Komboi said it was a milestone for the country where internet connectivity was concerned.
“We are excited about the link that is up now and following tests and final checks and commissioning, we are on track to have commercial services on by January,” he said.
The Coral Sea Cable System provide 100 gigabytes per second (Gbps) of capacity by next January into Port Moresby and would improve reliability and latency as it will have less points of failure given its direct connection into Sydney. Alcatel Submarine Networks started laying the cable in Port Moresby in early July and has gone through Honiara, Solomon Islands using its Ile-de-Brehat ship before reaching Sydney’s Tamarama beach last month.
