International project

Global telecommunication backbone networks have lacked an optical submarine cable connecting Northern and Eastern coastal regions of Europe, Russia, Japan and North America.

Cinia Ltd, as the leading party of the Cinia Alliance, in collaboration with MegaFon, is executing the Arctic Connect submarine cable project. The objective of the international project is to build the first trans-Arctic submarine telecom cable between Europe and Asia. The Cinia Alliance includes partners from Japan and the Nordic countries.

The planned, over 11 000 km long, new Arctic cable will complement and secure existing connections, increase redundancy of global networks significantly. The new cable route also supports development of the Arctic region.

The Arctic Connect telecom cable project is set on hold for further assessment. Read more: press release
