#Arctic #Fibre Sends Survey Team to Nunavut
- RT @northern_clips: #Arctic #Fibre Sends Survey Team to Nunavut
"...Theyre sending a seven person team to Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Hall
Beach, Igloolik, Taloyoak, Gjoa Haven, and Cambridge Bay to talk to the
local leaders. Theyll be looking to build some bridges, and figure out
just where to put the fiber without disrupting life in the region. After
all theres never been a cable quite like this one could be, with problems
that havent really come up before. And pretty much all the people that
know the geography up there real well know it because they live there.
Arctic Fibres in-service date for the full system connecting London and
Tokyo is December of 2015. But the bulk of the work would be taking place
next year, and the price tag will end up at $620M. Theyve also proposed a
secondary expansion which would use nine microwave links to extend big
bandwidth to 23 more communities for another $237M. ..."
