SI submarine cable system undergoes trial
Solomon Submarine Cable (SSC) has announced four licensed operators in the Solomon Islands that are now connected to the International Coral Sea Cable System for customer trials, which will last until the end of January 2020.
In a statement the company said the trials will also be extended to the Solomon Islands Domestic Network, with one operator already connected to Auki while the SSC aims to connect at least one to Noro and Taro by next week.
“During this trial, customers will get to experience the high quality, low latency internet service that the system provides while also allowing the operators to evaluate the potential of the new cable to suit their business and operational needs and aspirations. At the end of the trial period, we are aiming for full commercial service from the beginning of February.” 0600000000
