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).
