Globe Lands SEA-US Subsea Cable System in Philippines

Pulling of the SEA-US cable in Brgy, Talomo, Davao City.

Globe Telecom has landed the Southeast Asia-United States (SEA-US) submarine cable system in Davao, the Philippines.

The SEA-US cable was connected to the Globe cable landing station in Brgy, Talomo, Davao City that also houses the power feed equipment necessary to run the system.

“We are excited over this development since it won’t take long before we can finally address the rising demand for internet services from businesses in the Philippines,” said Mike Frausing, Globe business senior advisor.

“The primary source of information now for many people is the internet so the city government of Davao is very happy with this development. This will definitely benefit Davao City especially the service sector such as business process outsourcing and banking and finance as well as the whole Philippines,” said Davao councilor Bernard Al-ag.

The SEA-US cable system will link five territories that include Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States), and Los Angeles (California, United States).

At a project cost of around USD 250 million, the 14,000-kilometer cable system will consist of two fiber pairs with an initial design capacity of 20 terabits per second and will use the submarine fiber-optic technology with 100 gigabits per second transmission equipment per pair.
