Globe launches SEA-US cable system, provides enhanced PHL internet connectivity




Recently, Globe launches the $250-million Southeast Asia-United States (SEA-US) submarine cable system which provides direct links between Davao and the United States for richer and enhanced international connectivity for businesses in Mindanao and the rest of the country.

The 14,500-kilometer SEA-US international cable system uses the latest 100GB/s transmission technology to deliver an additional 20 terabits per second capacity. Such additional capacity will help to the exponential growth of bandwidth between the two continents.

The SEA-US cable system is connected to the Globe cable landing station in Brgy. Talomo, Davao City which also houses the Power Feed Equipment necessary to run the system. It is also the first direct connection of Globe to the United States via Guam, Hawaii, and California, offering faster transmission of data to the US.

The new cable system was built by an amalgamation of 7 international telecommunications companies and links five areas and territories that include Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States), and Los Angeles (California, United States).

    Puro ganyan. Pero sa lugar naman namin di available yung DSL o Fiber. Laging LTE tapos10mbps 50gb pa data cap. Di man lang i-update. Di katulad sa bayantel dati, libre yung pag-update. Sa globe may bayad na 2500. Tanginang Globe to.

      potentially less internet lag. sa competitive gaming, malamang makikita mo na ang bala bago ka ma-head shot ng kalaban, hindi yung dating tumatakbo ka pa tapos bigla ka na lang namatay… ;)

      sa mga nasa mindanao customers ng globe ang makakaranas ng improvement. mas makikita ang malaking improvement sa mga fiber/dsl customers, lesser extent to lte.

      if you are a dota 2 player, mahirap mag laro sa US server(east and west) dahil mataas ang ping. Kaya mataas ang ping dahil sa layo ng server nila sa atin at marami pa itong dinadaanan bago makarating sa US.

    Will it benefit Globe telecom only or even other telcos in the Ph?

    What has PLDT done lately, they seems to be just doing promo and marketing tricks like what Digitel used to do.
