By the end of March, at the first part of the Tasman global access (TGA) submarine cable extension will be in New Zealand raglan Ngaruniui beach laying, which marks the construction to the first step in the Australian 2300 km submarine cable connection.

TGA submarine cable is a joint project of $ 70 million arranged by Telstra, Spark New Zealand and Vodafone New Zealand, which are two sets of fiber optic submarine cable across the Tasman sea.

Project was originally announced in 2013, and planned to be completed by the end of 2014, but after Telstra cutting back  1/3 investment on investment in submarine cable, the investment decreasing to $ 6 million, the project was delayed.

Since then, Alcatel-Lucent Marine Network signed a contract to deploy a submarine cable, expected by the end of this year, the project can be put into operation.

Once starting the operation, TGA submarine cable is expected to provide 20Tb/s capacity, and will complement the Southern Cross cable system and provide redundancy for the latter

Initially, the companies who are committed to participating in the construction of telecommunications submarine cable promise it will provide 30Tb / s capacity, but now they all don’t make a comment on the capacity to reduce now.

The three major telecom company also expects TGA can have a good grasp of broadband submarine cable between New Zealand and Australia surge in demand. The next 10 years, broadband demand between the two countries will grow by 1100%.
