Delivering, maintaining and operating the best undersea network in the Pacific
The Interchange Cable Network (ICN) is an multi phased rollout of submarine cables connecting Vanuatu to the Southern Cross Cable Network in Fiji and Coral Sea Cable in Solomon Islands
On January 15, 2014 Interchange Limited completed ‘ICN1’, Vanuatu’s first international submarine cable system linking Port Vila (Vanuatu) to Suva (Fiji). ICN1 spans a distance of over 1250km, and was completed at a cost of over US$32 Million linking Vanuatu directly into the Southern Cross Cable between USA, Australia and New Zealand connecting all Vanuatu internet users to the global telecommunications highway.
This milestone cable project, links Vanuatu directly into the high capacity Southern Cross cable between USA, Australia and New Zealand.
The project to extend the submarine cable system to Honiara (Solomon Islands) is well underway. This US$30 Million project deployed by SubCom means Vanuatu will be strategically posed in a favourable location to encourage foreign investment opportunities. It will also enable Vanuatu to further cement its position as a strategic multi-lingual e-business hub for the Pacific region
