EGS Begins Cable Survey Off Chile

EGS Survey has started survey work for a cable system in the Chilean Patagonia using RV Geo Explorer vessel.

The cable system Fibra Optica Austral (FOA) links the southern city Puerto Montt to the Patagonian cities of Caleta Tortel, Punta Arenas and Puerto Williams.

Paola Tapia, the Chilean minister of transport and telecommunication, stated during her visit to the RV Geo Explorer that the FOA system improves the internet connectivity and avoids internet blackout in the southern part of Chile.

The FOA cable allows the company Comunicación y Telefonía Rural (CTR) to improve the rural terrestrial infrastructure and gives the right to internet access to remote communities in Patagonia, EGS noted.
