India and Pakistan consider fibre-optic link

7 Apr 2005

On the back of a thaw in relations between India and Pakistan, the two countries are exploring possible plans to roll out a fibre-optic cable network linking them. According to The Hindu Business Line broadsheet, Pakistan Telecommunications Company (PTCL) will partner with either Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) or Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) to connect Wagah with Mumbai. The link would bring down the costs of internet and data leased lines.
