The said underwater cable system is a USD 250 million and 14,000 km two pair fiber optic cable with an initial design capacity of 20 terabits per second which will use the latest 100 gigabits per second transmission equipment. It'll eventually cater the exponential growth in bandwidth Southeast Asia and the United States.

It's also a step closer towards the provision of a richer and enhanced international connectivity for the rest of the country.

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. “We are very near commercial operations.  Once it commences, the cable system will be able to provide greater route flexibility and better future support for bandwidth-dependent applications and services consistent with the growing trend of companies shifting their business critical operations to digital.

The cable landing station is located in Brgy. Talomo, Davao City which also houses the Power Feed Equipment necessary to run the system.

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. Thank you very much for the trust you placed in Davao’s local government and for choosing Davao as a place to invest in, said Davao Councilor Bernard Al-ag who represented City Mayor Sara Duterte during the cable landing ceremony.

This will ease the country’s dependence on international cable systems routed through northern Philippines and prevent a repeat of a 2008 incident where major international cables were broken due to the Taiwan earthquake thereby, leaving the Philippines isolated for a few days in terms of internet connectivity.

It has 5 link areas in Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States), and Los Angeles (California, United States).
