Venezuelan state-owned telco CVG Telecom has signed an agreement to install a submarine fibre-optic cable linking the country with Cuba, reports BNamericas quoting Cuban daily Juventud Rebelde. The project aims to connect La Guaira, in the Vargas state of Venezuela, to Siboney in the province of Santiago de Cuba. Feasibility studies, including the possibility of connecting the network to other countries, are scheduled for completion by 31 March. TeleGeography’s GlobalComms notes that in November 2006 CVG Telecom lit a 320km fibre-optic cable link connecting Venezuela and Colombia.
