Pacific Fibre - the New Zealand company planning to build a submarine fibre cable linking Australia, New Zealand and the US west coast - has issued a request for tenders for the system but without its erstwhile partner Pacnet, which was to have owned one fibre pair on the planned two pair system.
Fujitsu and NEC have been awarded contracts by a consortium of Asian telcos for a new submarine cable system that will link Japan, the Philippines, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.
Ten years almost to the day since they announced its formation, Telstra and Hong Kong telco, PCCW have announced an agreement to restructure the assets in their 50/50 joint venture, Reach, that will see the JV left with only some Hong Kong based assets. The deal has been reported as netting Telstra a gain of $150m but Telstra has loaned Reach $182m interest free which it has no expectation of recovering.
