India’s Reliance to improve Iraq’s broadband connectivity

02 Jul 2012

(MENAFN) Reliance Globalcom partnered with Iraqi Telecommunications and Post Company (ITPC) to expand Iraq’s broadband and telecommunications links to the outside world, Reuters reported.

The underseas cable unit of India’s telecoms giant Reliance Communications, said that the launch of Al-Faw Cable Landing Station, with a design capacity of 680 Gbps with two diverse routes, would initially use 50 Gbps on each route to meet existing market demand, helping Iraq to connect to the rest of the world.

The two diverse routes were connected to the Falcon undersea fiber-optic cable network owned by Reliance Globalcom.

Currently, less than 3 percent of the country’s 30-million population are connected to the Internet due to the lack of adequate infrastructure, high operating costs, conflicts between communications regulators and security problems.
