Globe Launches SEA-US Cable System To Enhance PH Internet
Faster internet connectivity in PH soon?

It's a direct link between Davao and United States for enhanced international connectivity for businesses in Mindanao and the rest of the country.

The SEA-US cable system is connected to the Globe cable landing station in Brgy. Talomo Davao City where you'll also find the Power Feed Equipment that runs the system.

According to Globe, this is the first direct connection of the company to US via Guam, Hawaii and California outside of Luzon. 

Moreover, Globe boasts that the facility is earthquake proof to ensure continuity of service. It was designed to prevent the 2006 incident where major international cables were broken because of the Taiwan earthquake that resulted to internet connectivity interruption that time.

The 4,500-kilometer SEA-US international cable system has the 100 gigabits per second transmission tech to deliver an additional 20 terabits per second capacity. It promises to offer faster data transmission to the US and cater to the exponential growth of bandwidth between the two continents.

First world connection is more than just fast internet but is also about building a better nation that transcends borders and opens infinite possibilities for everyone. We are excited about this development because of the immense benefits that the undersea cable system will bring to the Philippines. For one, it will provide support for the expanding business requirement for data in the Mindanao region where the cable landing station is located and in the country as a whole. This will also ease our dependence on international cable systems and ensure the resiliency of the country’s internet connectivity, said Ernest L. Cu, Globe President and CEO.

This system was built by a consortium of 7 international telecommunications companies and links five areas and territories that include Manado (Indonesia), Davao (Philippines), Piti (Guam), Oahu (Hawaii, United States), and Los Angeles (California, United States).
