Quintillion Subsea Cable System Ready for Service

Quintillion has launched its subsea fiber optic cable system in five northern Alaska communities, following the completion of testing.

The Quintillion subsea cable system is now available to service providers in Utqiaġvik, Wainwright, Point Hope, Nome and Kotzebue.

Quintillion’s cable system will deliver gigabit and higher bandwidth services on a 1,400 mile subsea and terrestrial fiber optic network, including a subsea trunk line from Prudhoe Bay to Nome with branching lines to the five communities.

We are truly excited to announce that the Quintillion system is ready for service,” said George M Tronsrue III, Quintillion’s interim CEO. “The Quintillion system makes it possible for local service providers to offer the same world-class products and services available long ago to consumers in the Lower 48. We look forward to helping our enterprise partners in the landing site communities serve their customers faster, better and more cost effectively.”

The three phase Quintillion subsea cable system is ultimately intended to connect Asia to Western Europe via the Northwest Passage through the Alaska and Canadian Arctic.
