FSMTC to roll out submarine cable

6 Feb 2009

The Federated States of Micronesia Telecommunications Corporation (FSMTC) has inked a deal with cable manufacturer Tyco Telecommunications to construct a submarine fibre-optic cable connecting Micronesia to Guam. The project is financed by a loan from the US Department of Agriculture Rural Utilities Service. The new cable will be an extension of the Hantru1 cable system, which is currently being constructed between Kwajalein and Guam and will be completed in March 2010.
