The new $400 million Southeast Asia-Japan Cable (SJC) system is expected to significantly improve internet connectivity between Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the Philippines, including the option to link with Thailand, the SJC consortium said in press release on June 27.

The SJC system provides “connectivity to key destinations to meet the growing bandwidth requirement in the region and allow for cost-effective and resilient connectivity to other submarine cable systems,” the release said.

The SJC is an 8,900-kilometer cable system, extendable to 9,700 kilometers when it connects to Thailand, operated by a consortium of telecommunications and technology companies comprising Brunei International Gateway, China Mobile International, China Telecom, China Telecom Global, Donghwa Telecom, Globe Telecom, Google, KDDI, SingTel, Telekomunikasi Indonesia International and Thailand’s TOT.

The cable consists of six fiber optic pairs with the initial design capacity of 28 terabits per second to meet bandwidth-intensive applications such as Internet TV, online games and enterprise data exchange. It is interconnected with a transpacific cable that runs from Singapore to Los Angeles, avoiding the earthquake zone in North Asia.

The landing stations of the cable are

  • Chikura, Japan, KDDI
  • Shantou, China, China Telecom
  • Chung Hom Kok, Hong Kong
  • Nasugbu, the Philippines, Globe Telecom
  • Telisai, Brunei, BIG
  • Songkhla, Thailand, TOT (planned)
  • Tuas, Singapore, SingTel
