09 May 2016Press releases
Retelit - the Italian landing party of the AAE-1 Consortium - has announced today that the AAE-1 subsea cable landed in Bari.
On time according to the Plan of Work, all shore end works at Bari have been successfully completed and Italy is now officially connected to the AAE-1 subsea cable system.
The AAE-1 submarine cable, spanning approximately 25,000 km, will be one of the first cable systems connecting Hong Kong, Singapore, Middle East, Africa and Europe and providing an alternative low latency route between Far East and Europe. Its completion will provide additional protection and diversity to the existing heavily congested cable systems.
