AT&T to Lay Down Fifth Trans-Oceanic Cable?

The goal of the project is to improve communications between the West Coast of the U.S., Hawaii and Asia.

Scott McFarlin, project manager for the AT&T Asia-America Gateway Fiber Optic Cable Project, explained, “Put it down under the sea floor wherever they can. If they hit bedrock, sometimes it’ll lay above, but there’s not that much area that’s like that. And then it gets out past 1,000 fathoms and just lays across the ocean out to Hawaii…
If approved, construction would begin in the next six months and last for about six weeks.”
