Improved Internet Connection through SEA-US Cable Link

According to Globe Telecom Inc., one of the major telecommunication companies in the Philippines, the $250-million Southeast Asia-United States (SEA-US) cable link will be advantageous for Filipinos and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies in the country.

Gil Genio, EVP and COO at Globe, said the project will give Globe the leverage and ability to provide excellent connectivity services for consumers and organizations, specifically ones that have tie-ups in the US. He added that it will benefit the business process outsourcing sector, large financial institutions, and other companies that operate in a global scale, especially now that the Philippines has stepped up to the plate as one of the preferred destinations of investors.

The submarine cable link worth $250-million is a project of global telco companies. It will be connecting Southeast Asia and the US by the fourth quarter of 2016. Other companies included in this project are PT. Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin), RAM Telecom International, Hawaiian Telcom, Teleguam Holdings GTI Corp. (a member of the Globe Telecom group of companies), and Telkom USA. System suppliers of the project are NEC Corp. and NEC Corp. of America.

The areas that the SEA-US cable link are set to link up are Manado in Indonesia, Davao in Southern Philippines, Piti in the Territory of Guam, Honolulu on the island of Oahu in Hawaii, and Los Angeles in California.
