China to boost internet access through undersea cable link

14 Jun 2005

The Chinese government has approved a plan to build a new 350km undersea cable to increase net access speeds for internet users in northern China by as much as 50%. Asia Netcom, the international cable arm of state owned China Netcom, will install the new 80Gbps capacity cable to link the eastern port of Qingdao with South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Work on the project will be completed in early 2006.
