Pipe Networks signs off cable funding

Funding deal boost prospects of second Tasman cable

Australia's Pipe Networks has secured funding for its PPC1 trans-Pacific cable linking Australia to the US and Asia via Guam — and delivering increased certainty to plans for PPC2 linking Australia and New Zealand.

The deal is with its cable supplier Tyco.

Tyco will begin laying cable in a few weeks and PPC1 is scheduled to go live in five months' time.

Tenders to supply a second trans-Tasman cable are now being considered by Research and Education Advanced Network New Zealand (REANNZ). Pipe Networks has partnered with New Zealand network operator Kordia to build PPC2.
