Converge embarks on new 5K-km submarine cable project

Fiber internet broadband provider Converge CEO and co-founder Dennis Uy recently announced that their firm is currently onboard a 5,000-kilometer long submarine cable project SEA Hainan-Hong Kong Express (SEA-H2X) connecting countries in Southeast Asia (SEA), including Hong Kong and the Philippines.

“This submarine cable system will boost the connectivity between our two points of presence (PoP) located in Hong Kong and in Singapore. Further, this will serve as a crucial infrastructure to add diversity and redundancy to our international network,” Uy said.

Converge furthered that the said project is expected to be operational in 2024 with “state-of-the-art” optical submarine transmission equipment.

“The construction of SEA-H2X will respond to the high broadband demand between Hong Kong SAR and Southeast Asia countries by providing needed capacity and faster transmission, and in preparation for the coming 5G era,” the company added.

The cable system will be implemented by HMN Technologies Co., Limited (HMN Tech)—from its design and manufacturing to deployment.

Apart from Converge, several international telecommunications operators are also involved in SEA-H2X, including China Mobile International Limited, China Unicom Global, and PPTEL SEA H2X.
