Pakistan to get faster internet through China’s submarine cable

Peshawar – China is yet again helping its neighboring country Pakistan by providing them with a new submarine cable system in order to provide faster internet.

Named PEACE (Pakistan East Africa Cable Express), the cable will have two landing routes in Karachi and Gwadar and will stretch across Europe and Africa. The project will be built by Huawei Marine and will be funded by Tropic Science Co., Ltd (Tropical Science). It will be managed by the telecom giant PCCW Global, headquarted in Hong Kong.

As per Huawei, the cable’s deployment has already been started and is expected to be active by the end of 2019. The new high tech cable will have more than 60TB capacity. During its first phase, PEACE will contain a 6,200km network that will connect Pakistan in Gwadar and Karachi with Djibouti, Somalia and Kenya, eventually spanning 13,000km, reaching South Africa and Egypt.

Moreover, Pakistan’s cellular provider Jazz and internet service provider (ISP) Cybernet will be the probable partners of the PEACE cable in Pakistan. The new cable system will give Pakistan more reliable and significant boost in the internet connectivity, reported Tech Juice. ICT expert Parvez Iftikhar tweeted about the PEACE submarine cable.
