Pakistan Bandwidth Capacity Increases

Today SEA-ME-WE-5  announced the completion of its 20,000 km long undersea submarine cable that also connects to Pakistan through a TWA landing station in Karachi.

TWA in Pakistan will maintain and manage SEA-ME-WE-5 , which is part of the consortium along with other leading telecom operators from 16 countries from across the globe.

SEA-ME-WE-5 is a 20,000 Km long cable system that connects Singapore to Europe (Italy and France) and traverses Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Bangladesh, SriLanka, Pakistan, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Djibouti and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

With the completion of undersea submarine cable, 24 Tbps of additional internet bandwidth is made available to Pakistan.

End users will be benefited in due course as once the internet operators (telecom and ISPs) will procure the necessary equipment to improve their infrastructure to make use of  of internet bandwidth, that will ultimately benefit end-users.

Pakistan’s total internet capacity before this was under 7 Tbps. As soon as SEA-ME-WE-5 is functional, Pakistan’s new internet bandwidth capacity would be around 31 Tbps.
