    "We are delighted to have achieved this next significant milestone in the development of FA-1," said Ed McCormack, COO of FLAG Telecom. "The cable system is scheduled to enter service next month and the mid-Atlantic splice, completing the first of two transatlantic links, is scheduled to occur within the next two weeks. FLAG Telecom is building one of the largest and most extensive global networks and FA-1 is a key element in our worldwide plans."
