Australia just got a new fat underwater pipe to Japan & the US

Category: News

NEC & RTI have just switched on a new 24 terabit pipe called “JGA North” running from Guam to Japan. This extension builds on their existing JGA South cable running from Sydney to Guam and completing the full run between Japan, Guam and Australia (JGA).

Guam is RTI’s base for a hub-and-spoke network further pushing into continental US and other countries.

It’s expected the cable’s capacity will further extend to 30Tbps and is the first to be constructed along the northern path in 20 years.
