Verizon To Build NEW Optical Line To China

Verizon Business is the only U.S. based business that will play a vital role in building the first next-generation undersea optical cable system directly linking the U.S. mainland and China. The Trans-Pacific Express will provide greater capacity and higher speeds to meet the dramatic increase in demand for IP, data and voice communications to the world's fastest growing region, Asia-Pacific.

It will support the equivalent of 62 million simultaneous phone calls, more than 60 times the overall capacity of the existing cable, to support future Internet growth and advanced applications such as video and e-commerce.
