Asia Submarine-cable Express to be Extended to Cambodia

NTT Com has reached an agreement with Chuan Wei (Cambodia) Co. Ltd. to extend the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) will be extended to Cambodia to provide reliable, high-capacity communication infrastructure for the increasing number of multinational companies operating in the Mekong region.  Under the agreement, NTT Com will lay Cambodia’s first submarine optical fiber cable.

The ASE submarine cable, which spans 7,800 km, is routed away from the Bashi Channel and the south coast of Taiwan, areas that frequently experience earthquakes and typhoons. The ASE also takes the shortest route of any submarine cable connecting Japan to Hong Kong and Singapore.

Participants in ASE include NTT Com, Telekom Malaysia, PLDT and StarHub.
