Trans-Atlantic Cable Will Link Europe with Americas
Global Crossing Ltd. in Hamilton, Bermuda, has announced plans to implement Atlantic Crossing 2, an undersea fiber optic cable linking the major cities of Europe with those of North America, South America and Asia.
Atlantic Crossing 2 will be added to the trans-Atlantic cable system already functioning. Capable of transmitting at 2.5 Tb/s, the cable has an undersea carrying capacity that is 25 times what is now available on this route. The $500 million cable is expected to begin service in early 2001.
