HKT announces today its plan to construct Ultra Express Link, a super high capacity fiber optic cable connecting Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate (TKOIE) and Chai Wan.
Ultra Express Link is a 3km submarine cable system with a target ready for service date in 2017. Providing robust, reliable, lower latency and diversity connectivity, Ultra Express Link will foster the development of TKOIE to become Asia’s data center hub.
Mr. Alex Arena, Group Managing Director of HKT, said, "The building of Ultra Express Link demonstrates once again not only our leading position in solid fiber infrastructure in Hong Kong, but also our dedication to build Hong Kong into a regional data center hub. The new cable, together with the existing extensive fiber infrastructure provided by HKT, will allow us to meet the rising demand for high speed and high capacity connectivity requirement from data center operators.”
Mr. Arena added, “HKT is the only operator to provide full diversity with different options of cable route across Hong Kong. We have full fiber coverage in all data centers in Hong Kong, particularly with diversity paths in all data centers in TKOIE.”
