Manatua Cable

Samoa signs Manatua Cable Consortium Communique

The Manatua Cable will provide connections from Apia, Samoa to Toahotu, Tahiti, with branching units for landings to Niue; Aitutaki, Cook Island; Raratonga, Cook Island; and Vaitape, Bora Bora.

“Manatua will not only allow for faster and even more reliable connectivity in our islands, but brings together our people in a way that not many other projects can achieve. For Samoa, it is another building block in the government’s vision for the Samoa Connectivity Project” said Prime Minister Tuilaepa.

And the target is by the year 2020, Samoa will be connected to four international fibre optic cables which includes Tui Samoa and the Manatua Cables.
