PH’s newest data link to the US, Japan now online

The Jupiter Cable System, Philippine’s newest international cable system, went officially online last Friday, June 29. 

In a statement, telecom provider PLDT said the new cable system will “immensely boost” the country’s international data capacity and advance digital infrastructure.

“The 14,000-km. Jupiter Cable system is the newest international gateway connecting the Philippines directly from PLDT’s cable landing station in Daet, Camarines Norte to Japan and the US West Coast,” PLDT added.

Moreover, Jupiter is set to triple PLDT’s international capacity to 60 Terabits per second and is seen to be especially useful since a bulk of Internet content and services accessed by Filipinos are from servers in the US and Japan.

“The capacity offered by Jupiter is expected to help promote the Philippines to global hyper scalers and position the country as the new digital hub in the Asia-Pacific,” the statement emphasized.

By increasing the country’s international data capacity, it said the Jupiter cable would enhance the country’s image as an investment destination.

To date, PLDT has access to 15 international submarine cable networks and wants to expand further with two more – the Asia Direct Cable and the APRICOT cable system, both expected to be completed in the next two years.
