Submarine cable company

American company contracted for Samoan submarine cable

Talamua reports the contract with TE Subcom means they will now need to build a warehouse at Matautu wharf to house the undersea communication system to service the region.

A submarine maintenance vessel will also be based there to maintain and service communication cables in the Pacific.

The Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Afamasaga Lepuiai Rico Tupa'i made the announcement this week saying Samoa competed with other companies for the contract.

The submarine warehouse will sell spare parts for undersea communication cables as well.
