Analyst: Paul Budde


The Southern Cross cable lit up in November 2000. Originally designed to deliver 120Gb/s, Southern Cross is planned to be upgraded to 240Gb/s by early 2003, with the potential to increase total protected network capacity to 480Gb/s at a future date. Southern Cross now has the potential to provide for Australasia’s broadband bandwidth requirements for the next five years, delivering 480 times the capacity of the PacRim system.
