Telstra expands availability on key routes in Asia

Telstra announced it has expanded its world-first ‘Always On’ service to provide more bandwidth options and lower latency on some of Asia’s busiest subsea cable routes – Hong Kong to Singapore and Japan to Hong Kong.


The service utilises the unmatched scale and diversity of Telstra’s cable network in the Asia Pacific region to reroute traffic to another path, even in the event of a cable cut or damage due to a natural disaster.

Paul Abfalter, Director International at Telstra said: “Last year’s introduction of our ‘Always On’ service guarantee was targeted at customers with large capacity requirements of between 10GB and 1TB. We are now expanding this service by introducing lower bandwidth options from 1GB with the flexibility for customers to scale up as needed.”

“This enhancement, combined with our ultra-low latency connectivity across these key routes will be particularly beneficial for organisations in the financial services industry, where speed and reliability between global financial hubs are vital,” he said.

Complementing the ‘Always On’ service, Telstra also has the lowest latency routes in the market between key financial hubs in the Asia Pacific region.
