HGC and EVN Telecom sign cable partnership

20 Jan 2009

Hong Kong’s Hutchison Glocal Communications (HGC) and Vietnamese operator EVN Telecom have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) interconnecting EVN Telecom’s newly purchased capacity on the TGN Intra-Asia (IA) submarine cable system with HGC’s advanced network. Under the MoU, HGC will also cooperate with EVN to provide connectivity solutions to wholesale carriers and corporate customers in Vietnam. The IA submarine cable is expected to begin its first phase in February, connecting to Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and the Philippines. With a design capacity of up to 3.84Tbps, the IA cable is expected to meet increasing demand in south-east Asian markets.
