Cuba and France agree to connect submarine cable

Havana, Dec 7 (Prensa Latina) Cuba and the French company Orange S.A. agreed to lay a submarine cable, which will help cover Cuba´s current demand for Internet and broadband connection.

The document signed between this European company and Empresa de Telecomunicaciones de Cuba S.A. (ETECSA) explains that it is a submarine cable system deployed by Orange, through its subsidiary Orange Marine, which from Martinique will connect the Caribbean island with the central province of Cienfuegos, and whose capacity will allow ETECSA to support its international expansion.

Its physical structure will be ready by 2023 and provide Cuba with a new route for international services, geographically diversifying the current connectivity, the company specifies on its website.

This will make possible, in accordance with Cuba’s economic possibilities, to continue expanding international connectivity in line with the development plan linked to the informatization of society.

The project is currently underway and has received all the permits for its deployment; once it takes effect, the companies involved will provide further information.
