Telstra eyes Perth-Singapore fibre link

APX West submarine cable to be turned on in late 2014

Telstra has signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding with SubPartners to acquire capacity on the APX West submarine cable connecting Perth to Singapore.

Telstra will prospectively acquire one fibre pair on the submarine cable, which is expected to go live in late 2014.

“Our commitment to developing the APX West cable is in line with our long-term strategic plan to grow further and deepen our Asia Pacific network capability in the region,” Telstra Global managing director, Martijn Blanken, said in a statement.

“The APX West submarine cable is particularly instrumental in meeting the growing data transmission needs of multinational enterprises looking to expand their business across the Asia Pacific region.”
